The Women’s Studies Program is a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding and analysis of women’s history and culture. The program seeks to help students recognize and understand how their lives have been culturally constructed by notions of gender, ethnicity, sexuality and class. An added benefit of having the Women’s Studies Certificate is that prospective employers and graduate school will appreciate the added dimension of inter-disciplinary work that goes beyond the basic degree requirements. The certificate is complementary to existing undergraduate programs.
The Women’s Studies Program seeks to redress the neglect in many disciplines of the significant contributions of women. In doing so, we hope to challenge the status quo, giving students new ways to perceive themselves, thereby empowering them to be confident, political beings.
An eighteen-hour course of study, the Women’s Studies Certificate can substitute for a minor.
