Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies
Transnational relations of race, gender and sexuality affect every aspect of society. Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) at UTM provides a rich and complex understanding of a range of historically and socially informed experiences as they relate to race, gender, class, indigeneity, nationality, ability, religion, ethnicity and sexuality. The program prepares students to critically understand and intervene into local, national, and global issues and questions related to societies and cultures and their impact on women, queer and trans subjects, as well as racialized minority groups and individuals, while learning how to change, and navigate the world around them with confidence and success. A major or minor in WGSS prepares students for careers in a range of academic and professional areas including policy, law, health, social justice, social service, government, technology, education, media, and culture.
