PhD Students

Doctoral students in the Harriet Tubman Department of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies are creating important new knowledge across multiple interdisciplinary fields.

Our doctoral students are emerging at the forefront of women, gender, and sexuality studies and related disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields. In addition to scholars building a presence in academic worlds through their research, they are also activists, writers, critics, artists, poets, and more.

Graduate students also play a vital role in undergraduate education, where their innovative approaches to feminist pedagogy encourage students to question social inequalities and give voice to struggles for social justice. Beyond the classroom, they provide valuable service to the department, the University of Maryland, and the community at large.

Because of the interdisciplinary nature of women, gender, and sexuality studies, our graduate students often play prominent roles in other departments and programs, on-campus research centers and off-campus organizations. Our students also hold internships at local and national organizations, such as media outlets, nonprofit advocacy groups, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and federal and state agencies. Many of our students have been recognized for their achievements through awards given by the University of Maryland and a variety of off-campus groups.
