The BA in Women’s Studies offers undergraduates an opportunity to explore the way gender works in the lives of people—men as well as women—from a variety of academic perspectives. The major gives a solid Liberal Arts education but also takes advantage of resources outside the College: students take courses offered through the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research as well as approved courses offered in departments across the university. Students may elect to follow the General Concentration in the major, or choose one of the more specialized tracks: Gender and International Development, or Theories and Politics of Sexuality. Minors are available in Women's Studies, Theories and Politics of Sexuality, and Health Disparities in Society. All of the courses of study offer a rigorous academic curriculum, along with exciting experiential learning opportunities, including service-learning courses, internships, and study abroad; the major culminates in an independent Capstone Project. Women’s Studies majors complete their degrees ready to make competitive applications to graduate and professional school, or to pursue careers in a wide variety of fields, including education, journalism, community activism, arts and entertainment, international relations, and the helping professions.
