|The interdisciplinary major & minor sequences in Women's and Gender Studies support
the Illinois Wesleyan University's commitment to diversity and social justice through
courses that open discussion about the ways in which gender and gender identity construct
our lives and institutions. WGS courses across multiple departments focus on gender
issues in academic study, consider feminist perspectives in philosophy, and challenge
assumptions about women's roles, gender identities, and sexualities in American and
world cultures. Women's and Gender Studies courses are open to all undergraduates
and most offer general education credit to meet diverse IWU requirements.
