Welcome to the blog for ….
The Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program offers two undergraduate minors and a graduate certificate. Ours is an interdisciplinary program combining empirical study and theoretical frameworks to look critically at the gender dynamics of the past and present and to open discussion about shaping the world of the future. Our courses explore gender dynamics as they intersect with race, class and sexuality, within the US and internationally. WGSS students come from all disciplines. The program draws on faculty from across the university to teach & to develop and participate in programming. The program has a strong community arm in the Friends of Women’s Studies.
The mission of the UH Friends of Women’s Studies is to support the University of Houston Women’s, Gender & Sexuality Studies Program’s research, teaching and campus and community activities through financial and volunteer efforts. The Friends also support the Shuart Women’s Archive and Research Collection–a unique collection of documents and oral histories from active and historical Houston area women’s organizations and individuals who’ve made history in Houston and the region.
