Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary program with contributions from faculty across campus and beyond. Our alumni are employed in social service work, health services occupations, business, law, education, and government at all levels.
Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is also an excellent second major or minor for students in a wide variety of disciplines, such as anthropology, biology, mathematics and statistics, nursing, political science, psychology, political science, sociology, English, social work, and history.
