Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies on Ecampus

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality major and minor and the minor in Queer Studies are both completely available through Extended Campus at Oregon State University.
Students can join others around the state, nation, and world in online discussions and projects.

 

In recent years, Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies online students have participated from Virginia, Ohio, Florida, Georgia, France, Germany, and Japan. Online instructors are outstanding campus and community scholars who teach students in this unique learning environment. Many Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies online courses meet university Baccalaureate Core requirements. All can be applied to a liberal studies major, a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major, or a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor.

In addition to all the required courses being offered at least once every year, we offer a variety of electives each term, some of which are exclusively taught online. A few courses are offered each summer term in 4 and 10-week options.  Additional online courses are in development.
