Through interdisciplinary and comparative approaches, students of the Women's and Gender Studies program from Syracuse University engage in the study of gender intersectionally and transnationally as a means of understanding the complex ways that ideas and practices about gender, past and present, shape the world around us. 


Take classes from more than a dozen academic departments and examine the myriad of ways ideas and practices about gender shape the world. Explore gender-related issues focusing on race, ethnicity, age, class, sexuality, ability, and more.

Women’s and Gender Studies integrates theory and practice with the aim of transforming social relations, representations, knowledges, institutions, and policies. Issues of justice, social and economic transformation, and women’s agency are central and at each level of study the curriculum emphasizes race, ethnicity, nationality, class, age, sexuality, and different abilities as categories of analysis.
