Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary program dedicated to exploring women’s experience through their roles, contributions, and scholarship. As such, the program studies the diverse representations of women within the contexts of ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, and gender.
In the Women's Studies program, students are encouraged to critically think about women’s place in contemporary society while discovering the lost contents of women’s contributions in the past. Women’s Studies prepares students for employment and for graduate work through a variety of interdisciplinary courses from the Schools of Arts and Humanities, Business and Economics, Health Professions and Social and Behavioral Sciences.
We are proud of our interdisciplinary program and of our diverse faculty. These are faculty who have helped in the creation and restructuring of our program courses. Many are faculty who are recognized scholars in their fields.
