The Women’s Studies Program (WOST) of IUPUI is proud to announce that we have changed our name to:

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS).

  • Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies best represents both what we do currently and the ways in which our Program will grow in the foreseeable future.

  • This change will provide a more inclusive environment for those interested in pursuing a degree that examines women, gender, sexuality, and how perceptions of gender relate to experiences of inequality.

  • We invite students and faculty to examine the social construction of gender on a holistic level.

  • The name change will assist in expanding our Program’s outreach to a broader demographic and increase student enrollment, thus providing education for a wider cross-section of our academic community.

  • The name change better represents what we currently offer in our gateway course, Introduction to Women’s Studies (W105), as well as through our many cross listed courses, such as:

  • AFRO A316 Women of the African Diaspora: Race, Culture, and Education

  • AFRO A303 Powerful Black Men
