Brandeis alumni and faculty are at the forefront of feminist scholarship 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 master's degrees create cross-disciplinary dialogue that prepares students for intellectual leadership in a variety of careers as well as their pursuits in continuing their education.

The WGS program offers several joint master's degree programs. The joint master's degree option may be pursued independently, or in conjunction with a PhD in one of several fields. All of the degrees we offer are on the MA level.
