About

In the Gender, Sexuality and Intersectionality Studies (GSIS) major and minor at Connecticut College you gain an in-depth understanding of gender, sexuality and other social categories through an interdisciplinary framework. You cultivate intellectual depth and breadth through your coursework in the major or minor.

Overview

Global-local connections

Students have opportunities throughout their coursework to put theory into practice. From community-based learning with New London community partners to summer internships in the U.S. and abroad, GSIS students get hands-on experience working with Gender, Sexuality and Intersectionality Studies practitioners. Study away provides another opportunity for students to experience and learn firsthand about gender issues in other nations and cultures. GSIS professors and students also sometimes travel together in the U.S. or abroad as part of their Connecticut College coursework or to participate in GSIS-related conferences.

After Connecticut College

The Connecticut College graduates draw upon the knowledge and skills they learn in GSIS to passionately engage the world. The interdisciplinary and praxis focus of our department ensures that students graduate with experience in research and advocacy skills and in cross-cultural communication that is highly valued by employers and graduate schools. They are practitioners, advocates, intellectuals, teachers, artists and writers. Graduates may go directly into work in a range of fields from dance, human resources, publishing, and business or they may go on to do graduate work in law, public policy and teaching.
