Transnational relations of gender and sexuality affect every aspect of society. Women Gender and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) provides a rich and complex understanding of a range of socially informed experiences as they relate to race, gender, class, indigeneity and sexuality. The program prepares students to critically intervene in the complexities of the world around them, and find careers in a range of academic and professional areas including policy, law, health, social justice, social service, government, technology, media, and culture.

Students should also review the Degree Requirements section prior to selecting courses
