Programs and Degrees

Women's Studies is an innovative, interdisciplinary, academic field of study focused on analyzing the lives, achievements, and experiences of women--past and present--across the academic disciplines. There is also a strong effort to recognize and document the diversity of women's experiences across age, race, ethnic groups, social class, and physical condition. Women's Studies is committed to empowering students to be active learners and independent thinkers, and courses are designed to encourage reflection, challenge existing viewpoints, and develop critical thinking.


A major is offered in women's studies which leads to the bachelor of arts degree. A minor in women's studies is available.
