The study of gender at Harvard takes place throughout the University. It is a scholarly thread woven through disciplines and degree programs that connects students, faculty, staff, and scholars from all corners of the community. Harvard’s schools approach gender through frameworks such as art, culture, economics, education, health, human rights, law, medicine, public policy, and religion among others, creating a rich academic landscape for engaging scholarship. WAPPP compiles the Gender Course Guide on an annual basis to support students in exploring the breadth and depth of gender courses at the University.

The guide was designed to help students identify programs, courses, and resources relating to the study of women and gender throughout the University. It lists courses across the University with a primary or secondary focus on gender by interdisciplinary topic. We attempt to be as inclusive and thorough as possible, but we are aware of the possibility that inaccuracies or omissions may inadvertently exist. It is also important to note that some schools only provide partial spring course listings. Please contact the schools or programs directly for complete course listings and cross-registration guidelines.
