Advanced work in Women's Studies at Texas Woman's University employs feminist/ womanist theories in the service of social justice, focusing especially on individual and collective transformation. Through the study of women's experiences in political, cultural, religious, biological, and intellectual contexts, graduate courses investigate the ways gender and other identity categories function as pervasive social constructions. Exploring issues related to agency, survival, resistance, and transformation, graduate work in Women's Studies adopts a relational approach that examines both differences and commonalities among diverse peoples. Toward this end, the Department of Women's Studies emphasizes rigorous interdisciplinary scholarship in the classroom, in research, and in community service.
The Department of Women's Studies offers a Master of Arts Degree and a Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies.
