The Value of Women’s and Gender Studies
Studying communication studies and women's and gender studies simultaneously will help you make meaning in your relationships, families, organizations, media channels and social identities, including age, gender, social class, race and sexual orientation.
Literary studies has been profoundly shaped by feminist theory, gender studies and queer theory. Earning a dual-degree in English and women's and gender studies gives you access to some of today’s most innovative and widely used approaches to literature.
Medical schools and graduate programs are increasingly looking for the kind of diverse, cultural knowledge that a degree in WGST provides. Double majoring in WGST or adding a minor can broaden your resume, build a background in women's health, build experience with diverse groups and cultures, and help you grow professionally and academically.
