Gender, sexuality, and women's studies focuses on the experiences of diverse groups of individuals and analyzes the changing cultural, economic, political, and psychological relationships among them. Because we ask questions about gender and sexuality that no single academic department is able to answer, we encourage an interdisciplinary approach to research and learning.

Every semester over 300 undergraduate students from across the University enroll in gender, sexuality, and women's studies courses.

Undergraduate Council

The Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Undergraduate Council provides a place for majors, minors, clusters, or anyone interested in gender, sexuality, and women's studies to get together. This group plans related events around campus and works closely with our faculty.

If you would like to take part in the undergraduate council, email sbai@rochester.edu.
