The Women's and Gender Studies Program at UW-Platteville is an interdisciplinary academic program that examines the contributions of women to history, science, the arts, and social justices and analyzes prevalent societal misconceptions about sex and gender. In order to gain a complex understanding of these issues, we offer courses in a variety of departments. Faculty teaching courses in Women's and Gender Studies are from diverse backgrounds and are committed to exploring ways in which interdisciplinary research and pedagogies can help strengthen students' knowledge about themselves and individuals or groups that are traditionally marginalized. Committed Women's and Gender Studies staff, faculty, and council members strive to provide high-quality undergraduate education for students facing the challenges of the twenty-first century and an increasingly globalized world.
