The Center for Women’s and Gender Studies offers a bachelor of arts degree in
women’s and gender studies, as well as a minor, and an area of emphasis for Regents
B.A. students. Many students in women’s and gender studies double major in
other fields such as history, psychology, communication studies, English, and other
fields in the social sciences, humanities, and physical sciences.
The women's and gender studies major
gives students a strong background
that will prepare them for graduate study or job opportunities in a variety of fields.
The program requires 30 hours in women’s and gender studies and related disciplines
that include introductory and advanced courses.
The women's and gender studies minor
complements many other fields
of study and gives students a special edge in the job market. Students often find
that a minor in women’s and gender studies contributes greatly to their
major programs in psychology, communication studies, political science or journalism,
to name a few. The minor program requires 18 hours of approved courses at the introductory
and advanced level.
