New Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

Faculty from CCGRS with expertise in the field of gender studies have created the Program in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies as part of a recent CAS strategic academic realignment process. WGSS will officially begin July 1, 2018, and will be housed in the Department of English. As an interdisciplinary degree and certificate program, WGSS will build on a vibrant array of cross-listed courses and an expanded structure of affiliate faculty located in various home units from across WSU campuses. WGSS will continue to offer the major (B.A.) in women’s studies and minors in women’s studies and queer studies in Pullman, as well as a minor in women’s studies on the Vancouver campus, and will develop Global Campus offerings and undergraduate and graduate certificates.

New School of Languages, Cultures, and Race

A dynamic new School of Languages, Cultures, and Race will unite students and faculty in the areas of Comparative Ethnic Studies, Foreign Languages and Cultures, and General Studies beginning July 1, 2018. The faculty-formed SLCR will combine personnel and resources from the previously separate units to provide a wide array of study programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels, including majors in Comparative Ethnic Studies, Chinese, French, Japanese, Spanish, and more. Minors also will be offered in Comparative Ethnic Studies, Film Studies, French, German, Global Studies, Latin American Studies, Popular Culture, Russian, Spanish, and more. Additional degree options will include bachelor of arts in Humanities and in Social Sciences; master of arts in American Studies and in Hispanic Studies; and a PhD in American Studies.
