Employers need people who can think, research, write and solve problems. Our students are known for their ability to see connections and to integrate commitments to inclusion and justice, and our degrees help students stand out among their peers. 

What can I do with a degree in Global Gender and Sexuality Studies?

Career opportunities are at a record high for students with degrees and training in women’s studies and gender analysis. A bachelor's degree in Global Gender Studies prepares students for jobs in government, community service, national and international organizations, or graduate-level education. Master's and doctoral students often pursue careers in academia, public policy, government, media and advocacy. 

Currently, many government offices and national corporations seek to employ “gender advisors” responsible for developing social justice and equality agendas, as well as incorporating gender issues into the organization's general policies.

Where are they now?

Our alumni are committed to promoting and fostering women’s rights and gender equality around the world. Many are now employed in governmental and international organizations like the United Nations, OECD or the World Bank. Working in local governments, community organizations, and non-governmental organizations, they enact positive change in countries including Somalia, Tanzania, India, Nepal, Chile and the Congo.
