The Bachelor of Arts in Women's and Gender Studies (WGS) is an interdisciplinary study of women and gender in cross-cultural and historical perspectives. You'll explore how women's lives have been shaped by history, culture, nationality, class and other elements of diversity. The courses in the program are coordinated through FIU's Center for Women's and Gender Studies, founded in 1982 — one of the oldest such scholarly centers in the country. Students have the opportunity to conduct research with faculty on issues related to women and gender.
