So What Can I Do With My WMGS Degree?

A degree in Women’s and Gender Studies offers students a wide range of career options. Students seeking a major or minor in WMGS have the opportunity to pursue careers in fields such as law, advocacy, counseling, education, international policy, health, politics, psychology, social work, sociology, public administration, and history–just to name a few.

WMGS students develop skills in oral and written communication, problem-solving, critical thinking, teamwork, and community engagement and application, skills that are highly valued by employers. For their senior capstone, students gain real-world experience by engaging in a community practicum or internship.
