Course content

The Women and Gender Studies Institute (WGSI) offers a program leading to the Master of Arts and the Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Women and Gender Studies. The Master’s ​Progr​am in Women and Gender Studies (MWGS) focuses on feminist colonial, post-colonialism, diasporic, and transnational studies as rubrics for studying gender, sex, and feminism. This perspective explores the temporal and geographic processes through which women’s and men’s lives, sexed relations, gendered subjectivities, and sexualities are situated.

The PhD has four emphases: (1) gender, sexuality, and queer studies; (2) feminist cultural studies; (3) feminist studies of technology, science, environment, and biomedicine; and (4) transnational political economy and development studies. Our offerings bring feminist scholarship to the tasks of challenging and investigating colonial, postcolonial, and transnational contexts. Central themes of the program include global capitalism, nation and state formation, empire, citizenship, diaspora, and cultural​ flows, all of which are examined through the lenses of diverse feminist scholarship. The program welcomes applications from international students.
