The Program in Women’s and Gender Studies is an academic program that bridges existing disciplines; that is based in sound, scholarly theory; and that is quintessentially interdisciplinary. The goal is to expand the areas of traditional focus, thereby providing students with a fresh perspective. Students from all majors are exposed to literature of gender and feminism and are prepared to return to their major courses of study ready to contribute differently. Students gain a new perspective into their various disciplines of study and a new view of their world, while acquiring knowledge of a flourishing area of scholarship.

A minor in Women’s and Gender Studies is available. While only certain regular courses are listed below as meeting the requirements of the minor, many other courses across the curriculum study women within the context of the various disciplines and in interdisciplinary ways. Students may petition the program committee to include other relevant courses in the program requirements.
