About

The Graduate Programs in Women's Studies and Gender Studies at Loyola University Chicago draw from a variety of departments and programs on campus to analyze how knowledge is shaped by power (especially around the intersecting axes of gender, sexuality, and race) and to create new pathways for promoting social justice.

Overview

The Women's Studies and Gender Studies community at Loyola University Chicago is broadly interdisciplinary; culturally and intellectually diverse; tight-knit and supportive; politically and socially engaged; and committed to open-ended critique, inquiry, and invention.
