Women’s Studies Is...
An academic program generating, supporting, and sharing research on women, gender, and sexuality.
Feminism is for Everybody!
Everything we do in the Women’s Studies program, the teaching, the mentoring, the committees, the research, all of it we do because we as the Women’s Studies faculty are committing to educating students and building leaders who will take the principles of feminism – fairness, equity, respect for all people, justice, service – into their homes, their polling booths, their jobs, and their communities. One of the favorite feminist authors my students read is bell hooks and the book of hers they love the most is, Feminism is for Everybody. If there is one message I hope our students take out of our classrooms and into the world, it is that feminism is for everybody!
We offer a B.A. in Women's Studies, minors in Girls' Studies, LGBT Studies, and Women's Studies, and a Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies.
