Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, M.A.


UNC Greensboro’s interdisciplinary Master of Arts degree is the only M.A. in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in the state of North Carolina. The master’s program balances feminist theory with practice, preparing students for immediate entry into professions or further academic study. Our graduates typically go on to advocacy, healthcare, education, or related professions in governmental or non-governmental agencies, or they enter Ph.D. programs.


Building upon UNCG’s historical mission as the Women’s College of North Carolina, we established one of the earliest Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies programs in the country. 


  • Courses offered by WGSS and other outstanding faculty across the university provide opportunities for students to engage in varied modes of inquiry on issues of local, national, and international importance.
  • The program offers internships in which students experience the “real world” built into coursework. This will allow for students to further their knowledge of the field outside of the classroom.


Graduates of our program have careers in politics and law, social work, psychology, human relations, sports and recreation, sociology, administration, the arts, business, education, health sciences, media, and other fields.
