Through an interdisciplinary program of woman-centered courses, Women's Studies students explore issues of race, class, religious preference, sexual identity, and gender as they influence women's lives in a variety of contexts. Students are challenged to learn more about themselves, to examine their own beliefs and values, and to learn to be respectful of and sensitive to viewpoints and experiences which are different from their own.
Note: The Women's Studies minor is especially complementary to majors in Social Work, Applied Psychology, Sociology, English, Humanities, Criminal Justice, Health, and Political Science. It is also useful in preparation for diverse professional environments such as business, education, law, and medicine and for graduate study in women's studies.
See Section II, Enrollment for required high school preparation.Recommended High School Courses
Students are encouraged to discuss with their advisor the option of a second major or minor that might strengthen or complement their major.
