Message from the Director

Welcome to the Women's and Gender Studies Program at MTSU. We offer an 18 hour interdisciplinary minor with tracks in Women's Studies and Gender Studies. We provide an annual Outstanding Women's and Gender Studies Minor scholarship, give periodic student awards for excellence in research and activism, and offer small travel grants to assist our minors in their scholarly and activist pursuits. We also house a library of more than 1000 volumes in the field of Women's and Gender Studies, available for check out by all MTSU students, faculty, and staff.

In addition, we coordinate a biennial conference in Women's and Gender Studies, assist with National Women's History Month efforts, co-sponsor events with many programs and offices on campus, and present the Ayne Cantrell Award for outstanding service to the Women's and Gender Studies Program.

Feel free to browse our site, stop by our office, call, or email. We will be happy to provide you with a program brochure
