Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies

The Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies Studies Program at Miami University is a dynamic, multidisciplinary program that investigates how women’s lives are affected not only by gender but also by race, class, age, sexuality, religion, and nationality. Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies raises questions about gender as a social construction, and the ways in which those constructions affect disciplinary knowledge, the experiences of women and men, our social fabric, the arts, creative writing, institutions, intimate relationships, and the workplace. Women’s Studies courses are organized around contemporary feminist research and theory, and focus on women as subjects of inquiry. Our coursework also focuses on how theory and practice come together. Students may choose from courses spanning departments, disciplines, divisions and ideologies. The Women’s Studies program provides a context in which women’s work and women’s issues are explored in-depth, celebrating women’s creativity, women’s lives, and women’s work.

In Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, students find an active and supportive community, close interaction with faculty, opportunities to take on leadership roles, and an academic program that allows them to cross the traditional disciplinary boundaries. With seven core faculty members and over 40 affiliates, the Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies program at Miami University integrates expertise in virtually every field of human endeavor.
