Welcome to Women’s and Gender Studies

Devoted to undergraduate education, we prepare majors and minors in WGST to become innovators in fields ranging from law and medicine to health, education, policy and politics, technology, advertising, media, and the arts. We are committed to hearing and amplifying the voices of the marginalized, interrogating and challenging heteropatriarchal white supremacy in all its manifestations, and working, as the UNC mission statement declares, “to improve society to help solve the world’s greatest problems.” As a multi-disciplinary department with faculty representing the arts, humanities, and social sciences, we are uniquely positioned to prepare undergraduates at UNC for leadership positions in wide range of fields as they pursue careers that engage with civil society. Through our Women in Science Program, we also seek to expand participation in science to members of historically excluded groups.
