Women’s Studies Concentration, BA (Interdisciplinary Major)


Cheryl Brown Travis, Psychology, Chair

Women’s studies encourages inquiry into the full range of the human experience by raising new questions and opening new areas of research concerning women. The discipline enriches the traditional Arts and Sciences curriculum by adding new perspectives on women’s lives and accomplishments. Women’s studies can broaden the education of both male and female students by helping them to understand the limitations placed on both sexes by narrowly defined sex roles. Wherever there is a need to understand women and an interest in the new roles they are playing in society, women’s studies can enhance a student’s career preparation and opportunities.
