Gender & Sexuality Studies

Gender and SexualityThe Gender and Sexuality Studies (GSS) major and minor provide you with a solid grounding in the interconnected, interdisciplinary fields of gender, sexuality, and queer studies, and engage these fields from a variety of perspectives—religious, economic, political, social, biological, psychological, historical, anthropological, artistic, and literary.

The GSS program trains you to examine gender relations and the construction of gender and sexual difference from a globally-informed perspective and to consider how gender and sexuality intersect with the social categories of race, class, ethnicity, disability, and age to produce our complex social identities.

While integrating theoretical concepts and empirical knowledge, GSS majors and minors learn to practice critical thinking about issues of gender and sexual identity and to develop strong research, communication, and writing skills.

For more information, contact the gender and sexuality studies chair, Prof. Patricia Tilburg.
