Overall Experience
Definitely. Study abroad changed my life and made me think in new ways. Had a ton of great experiences I never would have had if I stayed in the US - Williams College View Entire Review

About

Delve into practical and theoretical aspects of feminist and queer theory while conducting comparative field research in the Netherlands, Germany, the Czech Republic and Poland. 

Since 1984, the Comparative Women’s and Gender Studies in Europe (WGSE) program has offered students a unique opportunity to explore feminist and queer theory in practice across Western and East Central Europe. The program examines the trends and dynamics of European social, economic, and political systems as they influence contemporary gender theory, policy, and women’s identities. 

Following an orientation to the program, students participate in NOISE, a one-week summer school in 
women's and gender studies co-organized by Utrecht University and Netherlands Research School of Gender Studies. After NOISE, the WGSE participants spend the rest of the semester studying women's and gender studies in Utrecht/Amsterdam, Berlin, Prague and Krakow. Students come face to face with leading theories in women's and gender studies and have the opportunity to test their knowledge while working on their independent research projects. Participants attend lectures and take seminars with Director Iveta Jusová, PhD, as well as with NGOs, artists, activists, and professors from affiliated European universities.
