As the only free-standing women’s studies master’s program offered in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, our department inspires our graduate students to closely examine the differences and similarities of diverse peoples through our rigorous, yet flexible interdisciplinary curriculum.

Through coursework, research and community service, our graduate students also investigate the ways gender and other identity categories function as social constructions through the study of women's experiences in political, cultural, religious, biological and intellectual contexts.
