GSWS Major (BA)

The Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies Major is designed for students who desire a thorough understanding of the history, theories, actions and issues constituting the interdisciplinary field of Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies. The major effectively combines the two current minors in the program (Women’s and Gender Studies and LGBTQ Studies) to offer an integrated approach to both gender and sexuality studies. Our major also works effectively with a second major without unnecessary duplication of courses, but with the added intellectual enhancements and skills that come from thinking about gender, race, culture, sexuality and globalization in relation to other disciplinary topics and methodologies.
