Women’s and Gender Studies Program

  • Understanding the Changing World

    Get ready to engage in real issues that address gender, equality and social justice, which gives you the skills to be a valuable employee in any career.

We prepare you to think critically and examine society through the lens of equality and social justice. Our interdisciplinary field offers you the opportunity to explore a wide variety of topics ranging from women’s health to globalization. The program looks at gender and its intersections with race, class, sexuality and other important categories of identity to understand people's lives both historically and today.

Due to staffing changes, the WGST Program office is operating remotely in January 2021. Our suite of offices on the fifth floor of Close-Hipp will reopen for standard business hours on February 01, 2021. Our undergraduate and graduate advising will continue to be held virtually in Spring 2021 and advisors will be in contact with further details later in the semester. We are fully committed to helping each member of our WGST community advance in their coursework, program, and research. If you have any questions or need assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us via email at or telephone at 803-777-4008. 

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
