Joint JD/MA Program

At the intersection of law and gender

Combine a masters in women, gender, and sexuality studies with a JD from one of the nation's top law schools.

The MA in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Washington University provides students with advanced training in issues of gender, sexuality, race/ethnicity, class, and disability. Whether you come from a gender and sexuality studies background already or are looking to supplement your work in another field with a gender and sexuality studies perspective, our program helps you explore the issues that matter to you.

By combining a JD with an MA in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies you will be prepared to address a range of problems and possibilities related to gender, sexuality, and the law, including developing policies that address gender inequities and diverse sexualities in law firms, corporations, and educational institutions; contributing to programs geared toward increasing and engancing workplace diversity; and working with nonprofits that deal with gender violence, family law, and sexual diversity.
