Welcome !

Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) at Northern Kentucky University offers an interdisciplinary program that provides a broad scholarly exploration focused on women and gender at the intersection of race, class, religion, nationality, sexuality and other social categories. Students will better understand how social variables are connected and influence women globally.

NKU students can expect small classes and teaching faculty that offer rigorous and diverse curricula in a supportive environment. WGS course inquiry shows how to use gender as a category of analysis while also reflecting on the manifestation of gender in their own lives, leading to a range of personal and intellectual discoveries.

The program supports both on- and off-campus events relevant to women's social, cultural and political issues with a strong sense of committment to women in the metropolitan region.

We in the NKU Women's and Gender Studies Department want you to be a part of this exciting and ever-growing field. Please contact us.
