The Women’s Studies Program draws upon faculty with expertise in women’s and gender issues in the humanities, social sciences, and the arts. Courses in the program provide interdisciplinary and cross-cultural perspectives on gender roles, allow students to examine the social, political, economic, intellectual, and cultural contributions of women past and present, and to study women’s and men’s lives in the context of changing gender roles. The women’s studies major cultivates skills in critical thinking, oral and written communication, and information literacy. Those majoring in women’s studies can elect a double major in another academic discipline. Students choosing to major or minor in women’s studies are also encouraged to pursue a concentration or theme of their choice. For example, students could specialize in women and literature, women in the social sciences, or feminism and the arts, among other subjects. This theme would then be the basis of the topic for the senior research project.
