Welcome to the Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies has a rich history at Rutgers University. Inaugurated as a department in 2001, Women's & Gender Studies has grown from offering a few courses at the University in 1973 to becoming one of the strongest interdisciplinary graduate and undergraduate programs in the United States.
At the Undergraduate level, we offer a Major (Women’s and Gender Studies) and Four Minors (Women’s and Gender Studies, Critical Sexualities, Social Justice, and Gender and Media). We have developed each of these minors to introduce path-breaking research that address concerns of particular interdisciplinary constituencies.
