About

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program of Rutgers University offers liberal arts degrees that enable students to become active practitioners in a wide range of areas related to this rapidly expanding field of study.

Overview

About the Program

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program of Rutgers University is specifically designed so that full-time students can complete the program in one calendar year. The program is structured as a terminal master's degree for students and professionals who seek to deepen their feminist, gender-, and sexuality-related perspectives on activism, policy/advocacy, and research.

In addition, the Department of Women’s and Gender Studies is part of the Institute for Women’s Leadership (IWL), a consortium of nine units at Rutgers University dedicated to the study of women and gender, to advocacy on behalf of gender equity, and to the promotion of women’s leadership locally, nationally, and globally.
