The Center for Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies at Florida Atlantic University is a strong interdisciplinary program with nationally and internationally known faculty from a variety of disciplines. Students receive credit for courses in fields such as Anthropology, English, Criminal Justice, Communication, History, Languages and Linguistics, Literature, Nursing, Political Science, Sociology, and of course, Women's Studies. 

The underlying goal of Women's Studies is to understand the broad range of women's experiences that reflect class, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, age, and the interconnections that shape these experiences in specific ways. The programs prepare students to think critically about the political, social, economic, and historical forces that shape women's lives, along with women's responses through activism and advocacy. We welcome students who are interested in these issues.

If you would like additional information, please phone our office at 561-297-3865 send an e-mail to wsc@fau.edu, or click on one of our links.  

We look forward to telling you more about our program.
