Woman and Gender Studies Program
Major in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies at the University of Mary Washington and you’ll explore a breadth of gendered experiences, complicated as they are by race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality and class. Craft an interdisciplinary course of study to test your assumptions about our similarities and differences. Internships, research projects and opportunities for study abroad prepare you for graduate school or a career that makes a difference right away.
Please consult the UMW Undergraduate Catalog for specific and up-to-date major requirements.
Undergraduate outcome data is collected by the UMW Career Center each year. The data is then broken down by major in order to determine how many graduates in each major are employed, attending graduate school, or pursuing a different path within 6 months of graduation.
“Knowledge Rate” describes the percent of graduates for which the institution has reasonable and verifiable information concerning the graduates’ post-graduation career activities.
“Career Outcomes Rate” describes the number of graduates who have landed in any of the employment categories (full-time, part-time, internship) in addition to service, military, and continuing education divided by the total number of students for whom an outcome is known.
