Undergraduate Program

The Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies (WGSST) offers an undergraduate major and an undergraduate minor.

The undergraduate major prepares students to use an intersectional lens to critique and analyze social, cultural, political, economic and scientific assumptions and practices that produce and maintain relations of inequality. WGSS students understand the ways in which people in all their diversity are affected by society, culture, and its institutions and can then affect social change. A WGSS education prepares students to make an impact both in their careers and communities. 

The undergraduate minor complements most, if not all, programs at Ohio State such as African American and African studies, art, music, biology, business, communication, education, English, engineering, history, international studies, nursing/allied med, political science, public affairs, psychology and social work.
