Overview

The Gender and Women's Studies program enables students to build on these foundations while pursuing their own areas of interest by requiring them to produce an original Master's paper. The MA/JD is generally a four-year program.

Gender and Women's Studies degree offered by the University of Arizona is generally a four-year program, although several students have accumulated enough units to graduate one semester early. A minimum of 21 units of graduate coursework in Gender and Women’s Studies, plus 15 units of approved law coursework are required for the 36-unit M.A. in Gender and Women’s Studies. Students may transfer up to 15 units of GWS courses and seminars toward the J.D.

Students attend either Gender and Women’s Studies or The College of Law their first year. The second year is spent in the alternate program. Students would then complete their requirements for both degrees throughout the third and fourth years. Courses taken in Gender and Women’s Studies prior to admission to The College of Law cannot be applied to the J.D.

Gender and Women's Studies

Our internationally prestigious Southwest Institute for Research on Women (SIROW) was established in 1979. SIROW develops collaborative research-action projects of importance to women in the southwestern U.S. and the Mexico-U.S. border regions; links researchers, community organizations, and policy makers to encourage informed policies and accessible, responsive services for diverse women's health and well-being; encourages women's contributions in knowledge and cultural production; and supports science and engineering education of, by, and for women and girls through the Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Program.

 The department also has a member-based community organization, the Women's Studies Advisory Council (WOSAC), that promotes and supports the students and faculty of GWS and its activities. The Women's Plaza of Honor is sponsored by the Women's Studies Advisory Council and is a means to fund an endowment to support GWS students in their academic achievement.
