Student Opportunities

In WGS, the students come first.  We excel at providing our students with a personalized education.  High-impact learning experiences and personalized attention are routine, both in our classrooms and in shaping our students’ minors and majors.  Recently a new WGS major expressed her delight that, in WGS, we get to know our students well, and we work as closely as possible with our minors and majors so that they get what they need.  For instance, we regularly find or develop internships that meet our students’ particular interests and help them prepare for graduate school and career possibilities.  We encourage independent studies for students whose research agendas stretch beyond our curriculum.  We offer a teaching assistant program so that experienced WGS students can serve as peer educators in sections of WGST 200.  And much more.
