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 our recent move across campus, the WGST Program office is operating remotely for the Fall 2020 semester. We are fully committed to helping each member of our WGST community advance in their coursework, program, and research. We are offering our full roster of undergraduate and graduate classes in many different learning formats. We will also continue to provide programming and events in a virtual format.  Our undergraduate and graduate advising will be held virtually this semester and advisors will be in contact with further details later in the semester. 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.
