Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Women's Studies 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 Women's Studies, is on the cutting edge of this movement. Through its path-breaking MA in Women's Studies, its innovative and still unique MA/JD joint degree in Women's Studies 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 Women's Studies, one of the oldest and largest Women's Studies community support groups in the country.

Students can specialize in Sexuality Studies or Transnational Feminisms. As part of the Transnational Feminisms specialization, students have the option to study abroad in Canada or Mexico.
