Women's Studies

    Diane McPherson, Associate Professor and Coordinator

    This is one of the individual and interdisciplinary studies programs of the School of Humanities and Sciences.

    The central organizing category of analysis in women's studies is the concept of gender, which we understand as a pervasive social construction reflecting and determining differentials of power and opportunity. Women's studies, then, analyzes how this social construction shapes the lives of women. Women's studies is both an innovative approach to traditional subjects and a growing field in its own right. Women's studies courses focus on women in diverse contexts from a variety of disciplinary perspectives. They exist, as a result of a demand that has come primarily from women, to understand more fully the past and present position of their sex.

    Minor in Women's Studies

    For the minor in women's studies, students must take 18 credits. Each student must take Introduction to Women's Studies. Students are also strongly advised to take 338-41000 (Selected Topics: Women's Studies) in the spring semester of the junior or senior year. The other 12 credits must be from the approved list of courses. At least 6 of the credits for the minor must be level 3 or above, and no more than three courses may be taken from any one of the four categories in the list of approved courses. Note: No more than two courses in the student's major may be counted toward the minor. Additional courses in which women's lives, women's history, or women's issues are the primary subject may be counted toward the minor if approved by the coordinator of women's studies.
