From the Program Director, Dr. Bertrade Ngo-Ngijol Banoum
The faculty and administrative staff of the Women's Studies Program are drawn from a number of different departments within the College. Integrating a wide array of courses from the humanities and social sciences, the program focuses on the histories and situations of women in different cultures, and on the ways in which social and economic factors have affected women's lives. As a result, students augment skills and knowledge acquired in other disciplines, and gain insight into issues related to gender that will be especially useful for careers in human services, health, education, and public advocacy.
The program also provides the background needed for graduate study in the humanities and social sciences, as well as in the women's studies. Offered only as a minor, the Women's Studies Program is an option for students majoring in any discipline. Courses are open to all interested students.
