The Department of Women's Studies at the University of Dhaka in Bangladesh was set up in 2000. Prior to its establishment, WS/GS courses were taught in the curricula of other departments. Creating a separate department was intended to give institutional form to feminist scholarship, recognizing WS/GS as a key area in tertiary education. The curricula at both undergraduate and Master's levels are multi-disciplinary in nature. A gender perspective pervades the traditional disciplines of the social sciences and humanities at the undergraduate level.
