Welcome to Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program

The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGS) program at the University of Maine is an interdisciplinary program encompassing feminist, gender, and queer theories. As a discipline grounded in women’s studies, we seek to make visible women’s contributions and struggles. Our program examines gender and sexuality as they intersect with race, ethnicity, class, nationality, dis/ability, and other sites of social inequality. We in the WGS program aim to empower all persons through education and strengthening the links among women and men and among programs in the community and on campus. As a student in the WGS program, you will learn to critique social situations, organizations, and practices using feminist, gender, and queer theories. In addition, you will learn to recognize women’s contributions and struggles in a transnational and historical context. To learn more about the WGS program, please visit our (Admissions) page to request information or contact us at (207) 581-1228.
