About

Overview

The Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies at The Ohio State University offers MA and PhD degrees in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies, as well as a graduate minor.

The Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary field of research that focuses on gender.

Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies considers the ways that class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, (dis)ability, and age shape experience. The department integrates scholarship and methodology from the humanities, social sciences, sciences, and legal studies in order to teach students how to approach questions from multiple perspectives.

The Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies degree from The Ohio State University also prepares students to continue within academia, pursuing either professional degrees or PhD work in Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies or a related field.
