Temple University Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies
The Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies program welcomes students interested in an intersectional approach to gender, sexuality, race and other key identities and the consequences these intersections have in people’s lives. Our courses range from foundations in Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies to gender violence to LGBTQ activism, literature and theory. As an interdisciplinary program housed in the College of Liberal Arts, we explore the many variables that contribute to women's experience as a social group, gender as an analytical category, and the social, political and cultural functioning of sexuality.
