Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies Department

Study Abroad


Education abroad is a natural option for majors and minors in Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies, who can benefit from a variety of courses in international feminisms, cultural studies, and the humanities.  The Department recommends that you go abroad during the fall term of your junior year; the spring term of your senior year, summers, or intersessions.


Give back to the world! Teach English in China, assist a women's shelter in Morocco, or help preserve native species in Costa Rica through a service-learning program, or join an International Service Team (IST) with the School of Leadership Studies, which will allow you to participate on a service project involving issues like health, education, the environment, and youth development during an eight to ten weeks stay abroad. Contact the Study Abroad Office for more information about service abroad.
