Faculty Listing:

Women and Gender Studies provides courses that allow students to explore women’s and gender issues within multiple contexts such as anthropology, cultural studies, economics, history, literature, philosophy, political science, sociology, and the arts. This interdisciplinary curriculum helps to prepare students for careers in a variety of fields including social work, public policy, health, and business, and it provides a solid foundation for graduate work in such fields as law, education, and social policy. Courses interrogate gender and its relationship to the categories of sexuality, race, class, nationality, religion, and age.

The Department offers a B.A. degree in Women’s Studies, with an Honors Degree option and a minor in Women’s Studies. The Department also administers two interdisciplinary minors in Sexualities and Gender Studies  and in Domestic Violence Prevention and Services  (students interested in this concentration must contact to submit an application). Majors may choose to complete a concentration in Women in Global Perspective or in Domestic Violence Prevention and Services. Interdepartmental and double majors are also options. In addition, an internship gives students an opportunity to integrate classroom learning with practical competencies gained from actual experience. No minimum grade point average is required to begin, but students must not be on academic probation. No more than 51 credits with the WOMS prefix (including cross-listed courses) may be counted toward the total required for the degree.
