Women’s Studies is an interdisciplinary program in the College of Liberal Arts providing students with an understanding of the intersections of race, class and gender as these influence personal identities and as they shape experiences in family, politics, work, the economy and other institutions. Analysis of structural factors is combined with an understanding of the constructions of identities, including sexuality, ethnicity and race. Such an analysis allows us to uncover the powerful, yet nuanced ways in which our experiences are shaped by, and often constrained by, dominant social definitions and cultural images. Women’s Studies integrates perspectives from and incorporates courses from a wide range of disciplines, encouraging students to explore diversity and difference in a creative and academically integrated approach to learning.

A major and a minor in Women’s Studies are offered.
