Women’s Studies, BA
We offer a rich dual curriculum. More than 35 interdisciplinary courses based in the Women’s Studies Department (WoSt) are supplemented by another 30 courses taught by affiliated faculty based in other academic departments of the college.
Through coursework, academic advising, service learning internships, independent study opportunities, and the Honors option, the Department enables students to develop and assess their own self-expressive writing and speaking skills, specific educational goals, and career plans. Students may also assist in program and curriculum development through service on the Department’s Advisory Board.
Our dedicated faculty members work hard to promote a sense of community among students in the classroom and beyond. As a Department we encourage social and intellectual networking among faculty and students across departments. The Department also sponsors or co-sponsors many learning enrichment activities, including forums, workshops, research presentations, and cultural experiences.
