About

As a Gender and Women's Studies major at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign, students will receive a rigorously interdisciplinary education in the formation of gender in our philosophical, political, aesthetic, economic, social, and scientific worlds, and on gender as foundation for those worlds.

Overview

Program Overview

Since gender is everywhere, acknowledged or not, GWS majors will be well-equipped to illustrate and investigate gender and other relations of power, such as sexuality, race, indigeneity, class, nationality, religion, and ability, as these form and inform discourses and practices in historical and contemporary arrangements.

Gender and Women's Studies majors at the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign receive in-depth training in written and other forms of communication as well as skills in critical thinking, analytical research, and creative inquiry. GWS courses draw upon history, philosophy, sociology, and literary criticism, among other disciplines, so that our majors learn to identify limitations and expand possibilities for how to study and speak about knowledges, communities, institutions, populations, movements, and cultures in our world. 

The courses and training GWS offers are transformative; and our students go on to transform themselves, others, and the world. While GWS majors are well prepared for advanced study in graduate or professional schools, they also bring their education to activities in media production, art-making, social work, public policy, victim advocacy, union organizing, community/sexual health services, counseling, public relations, and fields advocating civil rights and social justice.
