Women's and Gender Studies students

The Augusta University Women’s and Gender Studies program was established in 1998. In addition to a thriving interdisciplinary minor, the program participates in a variety of co-curricular programming efforts on campus and in the community.

Women's and gender studies puts women at the center of study—their cultures, contributions, and perspectives. Women's and gender studies is defined by what is taught, how questions are asked and explored, and often, how the subject is taught. A common misconception is that women's and gender studies is just for women—it is not. It is a program of study for all genders—it is about women, but not solely for women.
