  • Women's and Gender Studies

    The Women’s and Gender Studies program provides a unique, interdisciplinary study of women’s roles in society and culture and the impact of gender on important issues, such as the workplace, health care, family life, politics and education. Courses are taught by a variety of professors from across the university to offer a diverse blend of historical, social, artistic and scientific perspectives on the study of women and gender. New additions to the curriculum include an online Women’s and Gender Studies Minor and a Women and Science Certificate that is designed to enhance students’ knowledge of equality and diversity among science- and health-related fields.

    The program helps to foster a strong sense of community through student organizations such as TRIOTA (Women’s Studies National Honor Society) and the Campus Feminist Organization, and through the Women’s Center, which offers a supportive environment to socialize and share ideas and works to educate the campus community on ways to eliminate barriers, prejudice and bigotry. The interdisciplinary curriculum paired with the program’s underlying philosophy of respect, equality and empowerment prepares students to become leaders and influencers of positive change in a wide array of professional fields.
