The interdisciplinary Global Gender Studies program stands at the forefront of contemporary women's, gender and sexuality studies, and queer and feminist theory. Currently, the department offers both master’s and doctoral degree programs.

The Graduate Experience

Graduate students take advantage of department and affiliated faculty expertise in critical issues of the modern world: globalization, social justice, citizenship and national identity, gendered violence, global and national health policies, transnational labor patterns, migration, and art and cultural production. Our global emphasis allows students opportunities for hands-on experience with teaching, community engagement and policy development on local, national and international levels.
