Women, Gender & Sexuality is an interdisciplinary program in which students study gender and sexualities with an emphasis on transnational perspectives.


By examining social issues, literary, scientific, and historical materials, students develop a critical, socially engaged sense of how gender and/or sexualities shape and are shaped by the world around them.

Topics range from women’s political participation to body politics to lesbian/gay parenting and transgender concerns.  Courses currently being offered focus on women's media, literature, and art, women in sports, queer theory, and gender politics.  A new course, Introduction to LGBTQ Studies is offered for the first time in 2012-2013.
