The Women’s Studies Program engages the study of women’s issues in an
effort to promote the appreciation of human differences. Through the
prism of a woman’s perspective, matters of gender, race, ethnicity and
class are explored.
The program’s aim is to develop interdisciplinary research and critical thinking among students by raising feminist questions regarding the exclusionary functions of existing knowledge.
This will be accomplished by offering a range of courses from a variety of disciplines that address women’s influence and involvement in family, history, literature, politics, religion, psychology, law, business, medicine, philosophy, art, education and the economy.
The larger goal of this program coincides with that of the field of Women's Studies: to restructure our thinking about society at large by developing new perspectives and transforming traditional disciplines.
