The Women’s and Gender Studies Program at Texas A&M University is a program of the College of Liberal Arts. Women’s and Gender Studies uses an interdisciplinary approach to the study of gender in culture and society and the achievements of women in the arts, literature, the sciences, and in other human endeavors. Attention is given to the historical, cross-cultural, and multicultural aspects of gender in the experience of women and men.

- Offering a range of courses for undergraduates and graduate students on gender as an aspect of human societies and culture, and on women’s achievements and experience
- Encouraging research on these topics through the provision of resources, recognition, and opportunities for presentation of research
- Providing information and service to the community outside the university boundaries
- Inviting outside scholars to the campus to share their knowledge with the local Women’s and Gender Studies community
- Encouraging close mentoring relationships between students and faculty in research and study
- Providing opportunities for cross-disciplinary interaction in roundtable discussions, social events, and research presentations
