Graduation Forms

The Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Department hosts its own celebration for our graduating Master’s Degree Students every year in May. This event is an opportunity for us to recognize your accomplishments, award prizes, and personally bid you farewell.

We invite all February, May, and August graduates of the program to attend, as well as family, friends and classmates.
