Welcome to the Gender & Women's Studies Program

The mission and goal of UTRGV's Gender & Women's Studies Program is to provide an interdisciplinary and global arena to study the history and theory of women, men, gender, sexuality, and other related topics. We hope to provide students with the essential skills to compete nationally and internationally in their chosen careers and to generate multicultural and global knowledge in order to produce informed and fulfilled human beings who contribute to a better future for all.
