Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at IWU

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