The Department seeks to provide students with skills in civic literacy that are a significant part of a 21st century university education. At the heart of this is the assertion that gender and sexuality are fundamental categories of social organization and power that are inseparable from race, ethnicity, class, nationality, and other categories of difference.

The Department offers a major and a minor. Designated WGSS courses may be used to fulfill General Education requirements for students of other majors.
