Bachelor of Arts in Women's and Gender Studies

Academics

The Center for Women's & Gender Studies offers a unique interdisciplinary undergraduate program in Women's and Gender Studies that includes the Bachelor of Arts degree, a Women's and Gender Studies Minor, and a transcript-recognized certificate program in LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies. The WGS degree is a valuable major, double major, or minor and functions as an important credential in applying to graduate or professional school and in today's job market and global economy. 

Intersectional and Interdisciplinary

The program's large and diverse faculty is drawn from the university's 18 colleges and schools. Particular strengths of the faculty include African-American studies, cultural studies, diaspora studies, feminist theories, health and social welfare, international and post-colonial feminisms, media studies, performance studies, popular culture, LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies and public policy.

Community

SAGE


Because of the small size of our programs, our undergraduate students receive individual attention.  Undergraduates are also invited to join our graduate students in all of our activities throughout the year, such as: workshops, conferences, special guest lectures, and faculty colloquiums.  SAGE: The WGS Undergraduate Student Organization is a social and educational organization aiming to provide space for Women’s & Gender Studies (WGS) majors, and Queer Studies scholars, as well as allies of the feminist and LGBTQIA+ communities on UT’s campus.  For more information on SAGE, click on the image above.
