Welcome to WGSS

 

The Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) Department at Wake Forest University offers all students rigorous academic courses that examine and question cultural, biological, political, and social constructions of femininity and masculinity. Our Department is interdisciplinary in content and approach.

Whether you enroll in a course that explores the history, literature, or issues of women, a class devoted to the sociology or politics of gender, or studies in masculinity, or the gay and lesbian community, you will find yourself in the company of teachers and learners who encourage critical thinking and dialogue.
