Women’s Studies


The Women’s Studies program is a multidisciplinary approach to teaching and learning.  Its intent is to correct the focus of the academic establishment that has traditionally ignored, minimized, or excluded the work of women in most branches of knowledge and areas of experience.  Its positive approach is a reassessment of learning and culture, and its goal is the assimilation of the best efforts of women into an integrated and equitable society.  The program is not intended to replace one’s major but rather to strengthen one’s undergraduate preparation through a concentration of various aspects of Women’s Studies.  A concentration in Women’s Studies prepares students for graduate study not only in that area, but also any area that requires a fully balanced, gender-sensitive understanding of society and culture.  Also, Women’s Studies prepares students to interact in a professional world that reflects the marked changes occurring in traditional gender roles.
