Brandeis faculty and alumni are in the vanguard of feminist scholars worldwide. The Brandeis University Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program (WGS) provides a strong grounding in discipline-specific studies along with an interdisciplinary education in the theories, methods, and scholarship of women's, gender, and sexuality studies. By introducing current research in a range of fields, the M.A. degrees create cross-disciplinary dialogue and prepare students for intellectual leadership in careers as diverse as public policy, education, social service, law, management, and writing. Students may also enroll in courses offered by the Graduate Consortium in Women's Studies
The WGS Program offers a stand-alone M.A. program as well as several joint M.A. programs. The joint master's degree option may be pursued independently, or in conjunction with a Ph.D. in one of several fields. There is no Ph.D. offered solely in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. All of the degrees we offer are on the M.A. level.
