About Us

The Boston University Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGS) Program fosters interdisciplinary research and teaching related to the intersections of gender, sexuality, race, nationality, and other categories of identity that organize and disorganize our lives. The program offers an undergraduate minor, a graduate certificate, and also sponsors public lectures, film screenings, discussions, and other events.

WGS faculty work in and across the natural sciences, humanities, and social sciences and are committed to innovative scholarship and pedagogy, including the interdisciplinary team-teaching that is the cornerstone of both the undergraduate and graduate programs.  Boston University faculty interested in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies participate in a lively intellectual community as part of our Faculty Network and annual Seminar Series.

Graduate students from across Boston University take courses not only in the graduate certificate program but also through the Boston-area Consortium for Graduate Studies in Gender, Culture, Women, and Sexuality. The Graduate Pedagogical Workshop, held twice a year, offers graduate students resources for teaching WGS content across disciplines.
