The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) program is a multi-disciplinary approach to understanding gender and sexuality in history, society, and culture. The program encourages political and social activism, and emphasizes the importance of intersectionality as a discourse when discussing gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, and class. Students may take introductory courses in the WGSS program as part of their core curriculum, as well as earn a certificate demonstrating advanced study in topics related to women, gender, and sexuality. Approved courses for the certificate offer the opportunity of interdisciplinary study in a wide variety of Arts & Sciences programs.
