Women’s Studies is an interdisciplinary major based on the premise that gender is a historical variable that affects the social, economic, and political structure of our society as well as the everyday lives of women and men. Employing a wide range of perspectives from disciplines such as history, literature, philosophy, sociology, psychology, art, anthropology, and biology, students will explore and examine how these disciplines pertain to women and how women have contributed to the cultural and sociological landscape.
