Department of Women's, Gender, & Sexuality Studies

Womens, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) is one of the fastest growing academic fields in the country. The Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at the University of Cincinnati, as one of the oldest and most respected and established academic programs in WGSS, is on the cutting edge of this movement. Through its path-breaking MA in WGSS, its innovative and still unique MA/JD joint degree in WGSS and Law, its Graduate Certificate, and its popular Undergraduate Major and Minor, students gain a broad and in-depth understanding of women's and gender issues.

Students in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at UC experience small classes with much individualized attention, outstanding research and teaching faculty, rigorous and diverse curricula, internship and study abroad opportunities, graduate student teaching experience, regular symposia and guest speakers, an excellent placement record, and a highly supportive environment. They also enjoy mentoring and grant support from the Friends of WGSS, one of the oldest and largest Women's Studies community support groups in the country.
