Historical Information

Purdue University’s Women’s Studies Program (then known as the Committee on Women’s Studies) began in 1979 when an Intro to Women’s Studies class was offered for the first time. As the program expanded, it curated a film series, organized conferences and festivals, and added an undergraduate minor (1983), a graduate minor (1995), and an undergraduate major (2004). In 2013, the program was renamed as the Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.
