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.
