The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program (WGS) offers a stand-alone MA program as well as a number of joint Master’s programs outlined below. WGS provides a strong grounding in discipline-specific studies along with an interdisciplinary education in the theories, methods, and scholarship of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. By introducing students to current research in a variety of fields, Master’s degree programs generate cross-disciplinary dialogue and prepare students for positions and professions in women's, gender, and sexuality studies. Students enrolled in PhD programs in eight different fields are eligible to undertake the joint MA. Seven fields—five in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (anthropology, English, music, Near Eastern and Judaic Studies, sociology) and two in the Heller School for Social Policy and Management (public policy, and sustainable international development)—offer a terminal Master’s with Women's, Gender, and Sexuality. Learning Goals The women's, gender, and sexuality studies curriculum prepares students for a wide range of careers. Graduates of our program are applying their skills and knowledge to academic and professional pursuits in medicine, law, education, government, social service, public policy, religion, counseling, international relations, journalism, publishing, business, and the arts.
