Women's and Gender Studies

Welcome to Women's and Gender Studies!

Women’s and Gender Studies (WGST) is a multidisciplinary field that provides an integrated approach to understanding the social and cultural constructions of gender that shape our diverse experiences. With its roots in social justice movements of the last three decades, the methods and goals of Women’s and Gender Studies support the University’s mission of education informed by both ethical and intellectual values. In addition to educating undergraduates in traditional classroom environments, the program provides opportunities for civic engagement through internships, support for faculty scholarship on gender issues across the disciplines, and diverse co-curricular programming for the university.
