Why WGSS

Students with a minor in WGS extensively broaden their educational, occupational, and professional opportunities in the public and private sectors by enriching their liberal arts, social science or natural science training. Employers in business, law, education, journalism, the arts, government, medicine, public and social services actively recruit job candidates with knowledge and training in issues of women and gender.

Graduate schools and professional programs particularly select women’s and gender studies students for their creativity, intellectual flexibility, sensitivity to difference and breadth of knowledge.
