Information about the University and Department
The Women and Gender Studies program and center (WGST) at George Mason is based on an integrated, co-curricular model, and is one of the few in the country to house both academic programs (undergraduate and graduate) based in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and student affairs initiatives in collaboration with Mason’s unit for student affairs, University Life. The WGST program offers a graduate MA concentration and both an online and in-person graduate certificate in women and gender studies, an undergraduate major and minor, and an interdisciplinary undergraduate minor in LGBTQ studies. As a fully integrated program and center, WGST offers a space for the exploration of social inequalities of gender, sexuality, race, class, and disability across disciplinary and cultural borders through academic coursework, student development, and leadership opportunities. A campus leader in promoting interdisciplinarity, the Women and Gender Studies Program facilitates collaborations with a broad range of disciplines across the humanities, arts, and social sciences, and has strong links with African and African American Studies (AAAS), Cultural Studies, and Mason’s Center for Humanities Research.
Both WGST and Philosophy contribute to the Mason Core https://catalog.gmu.edu/mason-core/ , Mason’s general education program undertaken by all undergraduate students seeking a baccalaureate degree.
