About

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. Doctoral students will find that our curriculum is excellent preparation for teaching in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies and in their chosen disciplines.

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program offers a stand-alone MA program as well as several joint MA programs (please see the list below under “Degree Options”). The joint master's degree in women's, gender, and sexuality studies and another discipline may be pursued independently or in conjunction with a PhD in one of several fields. There is no PhD offered solely in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies; all the degrees we offer are on the MA level. Students pursuing the MA degrees are encouraged to enroll in courses offered by the Graduate Consortium in Women's Studies (Boston College, Boston University, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Northeastern University, Simmons College, Tufts University, and UMass Boston).
