There are currently two options for graduate work in women and gender studies.

Master of Arts in Liberal Studies

Utilizing the liberal studies seminars and graduate-level Women and Gender Studies (WMS) courses, students can design a plan of study that concentrates on their areas of interest within women and gender studies.

Since WMS courses are cross-listed with their home departments, students have considerable flexibility in their course selection. Students may also focus attention on a particular aspect of women and gender studies through independent study at two levels (WMS 599 and WMS 699). Graduate WMS courses may also be taken, under advisement, as electives in other master’s of arts programs.
