Women's & Gender Studies

Gonzaga University Women's and Gender Studies Department

Gonzaga's Women's and Gender Studies Program provides students with the tools they need to participate competently in our society's current conversation about gender. This multi-disciplinary program examines the historical and contemporary circumstances which have shaped the relationships between men and women. It raises fundamental questions about gender relations, explores philosophical assumptions about human nature, and considers the possibility of new social practices which will bring about greater equality and mutual understanding.

Celebrating 25 years at Gonzaga University! 

The Women's and Gender Studies department has been a part of Gonzaga for 25 years. Since the start in 1992, WGST has focused on creating awareness, promoting equality, and empowering students to make the changes they want to see happen. The program has come a long way in 25 years, and we are excited to see where the next 25 take us!
