Our Vision

The Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Washington State University is an interdisciplinary degree program that places gender and sexuality at the center of inquiry, preparing students and professionals for careers in a diverse world and for developing strategies in social and institutional change. A dynamic, collaborative undergraduate curriculum offers training and provides opportunities for analyzing the myriad ways in which social class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, nationality, age, and ability intersect to shape understanding of gendered experience and injustice.

The program is comprised of engaged students who ask critical questions about the world around them and faculty who share research and teaching expertise in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. Presented through publications, grant-funded research, graduate seminars, lecture series, public events, and professional conferences, faculty scholarship showcases interdisciplinary interventions and innovative knowledge about gender and sexuality from the arts, humanities, social sciences, and sciences.
