Graduate Programs

There are many places to pursue graduate level training in gender, sexuality and women’s studies to extend what you have learned at Loyola. Joan Korenman at the University of Maryland Baltimore County keeps the definitive list of undergraduate and graduate programs and research centers inside and outside of the US. You can find it here.

Below are a list of the US institutions on Dr, Koreman’s list (as of 09/03/2020) from which you can obtain a Graduate Certificate, Masters degree or PhD alone or in combination with other academic and applied programs ( such as law, social work, religion).

Bookmark this page or print out a copy when you set up a meeting with your advisor to talk about the places you are considering further study. This is especially important if your advisor does not teach in the Loyola G&SS program.
