A degree in GSW
Wayne State's interdisciplinary Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies (GSW) program allows students to study gender and sexuality through the lenses of feminism, queer and trans studies, with special attention to critical intersections with race, class, religion, health and geography. GSW is also a place for feminist, queer and ally students to find community.
Our program prepares students to bring together theory and praxis, academic methods and social justice principles. GSW graduates become experts in critical thinking, sharp analysis, clear writing and deep research, skills that prepare them for meaningful career pathways in many fields.
Meet our peer mentor: Storm White
I became a peer mentor because it is a unique way to gain experience in a field I deeply care about. I stayed a peer mentor because, as I worked with students, I came to realize how important it is to have a community of like-minded individuals all working towards a shared, positive experience.

With being a peer mentor, I saw an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of LGBTQ students like me on campus, both on an individual level and on a community level–that is, helping LGBTQ students find each other and form meaningful connections that make campus safer for everyone.
