Faculty and students in the Department Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies analyze gender as it interacts with sex, sexuality, “race”/ethnicity, class, ability, age, and global inequality to structure social institutions and experience. This analysis enables both an understanding of oppression as well as a vision of social equity and justice.

Faculty members foster an interactive classroom learning environment and encourage students to consider their own experiences in relation to course content.

As an academic field, Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies is interdisciplinary, and courses are offered both in the department of GWSS and in eighteen other programs and departments across the university.

With a degree in Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies, a graduate is prepared for a variety of careers, including the administration of women’s and LGBTQ programs, health or human services fields, public policy, medicine, business, law, and education. Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies is also an excellent liberal arts major, providing a strong foundation for graduate study. K-State graduates of the department have gone on to earn masters and doctoral degrees in gender, women, and sexuality studies; public administration; law, social work; International Studies, Peace, and Conflict Resolution; psychology; English; library science; and more.
