#NoDAPL: Putting Theory Into Practice - Dedicated to the Women Water Protectors at Standing Rock
We are pleased to announce a series of programs this year - #Brandeis#TheDialogues - focused on navigating gender and race at work. Check out the website for these interactive workshops, round tables and panels that grew out of a year of conversation between students, staff and faculty. They focus on educating and connecting all of us around these important issues and feature many members of the Brandeis community.
Welcome to the website of the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program (WGS) at Brandeis. We are a community of undergraduates, graduate students, faculty, staff and Board members from a range of disciplines and backgrounds. Together we ask questions about intersectional aspects of women, gender and sexuality in classes, lectures and a range of public events.
We offer an undergraduate major and minor in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies and help to support the undergraduate minor in Sexuality and Queer Studies (SQS). We also offer a standalone MA in Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies and 10 joint MA programs in which graduate students focus on WGS and another discipline. We collaborate with a range of groups on campus and are generously supported by our National Board.
