Gender, Sexuality and Women's Studies at Union is an interdisciplinary academic program rich with opportunities for research, inquiry and critical analysis. It examines and challenges assumptions and constructs about gender that affect people's lives around the globe.

Our program is designed to help students become aware of unexamined assumptions and stereotypes about sexual and gender differences, and how they shape human organizations, institutions and individuals’ lives. Many courses also introduce students to differences of class, race, ethnicity and sexual orientation in a range of societies.
