Look what's happening in WGSS!
The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program at Purdue University, housed in the College of Liberal Arts, offers students ways of systematically studying normative and non-normative sexualities, gender, and women's experience in all aspects of life.
Our curriculum is committed to the scholarly understanding of difference and diversity through interdisciplinary courses that lead to an undergraduate major in WGSS, minor in WGSS, or minor in LGBT Studies.
We also offer graduate certificates in WGSS and graduate concentrations in WGSS for those M.A. and PhD students seeking degrees in History, Cmmunication, and Anthropology. Graduate and undergraduate courses re-examine the traditional disciplines and explore complex bodies of knowledge representing the intersection of gender and sexuality with factors such as race, ethnicity, class, and nationality in U.S. and global contexts.
