As a Department in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, the Center for Women's Studies offers both a major and minor. Students receive academic training and leadership skills with the goal of improving women's lives in the domestic and professional arenas. The analysis of gender, race and ethnicity, class, and sexuality is central to the major as well as cross-cultural and international perspectives.


Equality in Action

The Center for Women's studies serves a dual purpose: it offers a major and minor through an abundance of courses and acts as a campus and community resource and research center for shcholarship concerning women.
