About

Overview

The Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies major provides students with the opportunity to examine systematically the role and politics of sexuality and to interrogate the discriminatory practices disadvantaging those who reject or fall outside of compulsory heteronormativity.Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies sponsors student engagement opportunities on issues central to feminism, promotes equality for all people regardless of the way they express their gender or sexuality, and nurtures academic research and scholarly inquiry that supports these core values.
