A Sense of Community

Current students often reach out to and connect with alumni of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program for research, internship opportunities, and networking.

Between 1992 and 2009, Clark University offered a Ph.D. in women’s studies designed for future academics as well as for professionals in public policy, government, and the private sector.

For a number of years, we also have offered an undergraduate major in women’s and gender studies.
