Students in Women’s and Gender Studies develop skills that are highly valued by employers; these include critical thinking, research, analysis, oral/written communication, presentation and problem solving skills. Many of our students also develop valuable experience in activism, advocacy and organizing through classroom and community-based experience.
Alumni from WGS have followed a number of trajectories. Some have gone on to graduate programs, a good number are leaders in local and national nonprofit advocacy or service organizations, some are elementary, high school, and community college teachers, and some have developed their own independent career paths as artists, writers, healers, musicians, and activists.
Please see the following resources for more information about our alumni and ways to connect to our broader alumni community.
