This concentration will provide students the opportunity to study gender and sexuality from a variety of disciplinary perspectives in conjunction with their study toward a graduate degree. Interdisciplinary by nature, Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies courses primarily address the diversity of gendered experiences based on race, ethnicity, class, religion, nationality, and sexual orientation. The concentration is an appropriate option for students who wish to focus on gender and/or sexuality in their disciplinary field.

Applicants must declare their interest in the concentration to both the WGSS program director, Dr. Julia Jordan-Zachery, and the director of their own program of studies. The students must achieve a B or higher in the concentration and complete the major degree of study for it to be noted on the transcript. The WGSS program director will certify completion of the concentration.
