Gender, sexuality, and women's studies at Cornell is an interdisciplinary program offering both a major and minor. We offer core courses in gender, sexuality, and women's studies including an introductory course that is open to all students, as well as a senior seminar and capstone project for our majors. The program also includes a wide variety of cross-listed courses from departments ranging from art to religion to politics.
In addition to exposing students to feminist theory and research, our courses frequently engage students in activist and service projects. We also encourage students to deepen their coursework by pursuing internships, independent and off-campus study, and campus leadership roles as a way to integrate classroom and real-world learning.
