A graduate student can elect to study Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies in the following ways:

1. Master of Arts in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (MA). This means specializing primarily in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

2. Primary field of study within the M.A.I.S. degree (Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies). This means specializing in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and declaring two secondary areas of study that complement the primary field. One of these secondary areas can be Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies also. Within Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, our areas of specialization include contemporary women's issues; gender, race, and class; and international women's issues.

3. Secondary field of study within the M.A.I.S. degree. This means specializing in a primary area that is not Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies and declaring Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies as one or two of the secondary areas of study, or having three equal areas of study.

4. Graduate minor in conjunction with a Master's or Doctoral in another field of study. This means you receive a graduate minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies while you are working on a graduate degree in another department.

Students working on the graduate minor in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies must complete 12 credits at the Master's level and 18 credits at the Doctoral level.
