Women’s Studies courses brought together many passions for me, and eventually led to my now being in an M.Ed. program in order to teach women’s history at the college level.

Women’s Studies Minor

The Women’s Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program which focuses on the diversity of women’s lives and work in cultural and historical perspective, and which introduces students to feminist methodologies and explores the use of gender as a tool for analyzing experience. The program is comprised of a common core course, approved courses offered by several departments, and a senior project. Women and men will benefit from pursuing the Women’s Studies minor.
