The Associated Colleges of the Twin Cities (ACTC) offer a cooperative major in Womens Studies. Women’s studies is an interdisciplinary program which takes gender as its critical term of inquiry, exploring it as a social construct and analyzing its impact on traditional disciplines. 


As an interdisciplinary Womens Studies major and minor at University of Saint Thomas Saint Paul, women’s studies spans the curriculum, incorporating many disciplines in a diverse and stimulating package of courses. Courses consider historical and contemporary contexts from multicultural and multiracial perspectives, and focus on the intersections of race, class, gender, ethnicity, sexuality, religion, and culture.

Learning outcomes

Students in the program learn how to analyze social forces and assumptions that have shaped women’s lives on individual, national, and global levels. This flexible program of study combines theoretical, practical and research components and provides preparation for both advanced study and professional work, for example, in organizations focusing on women, in human relations departments of corporations, and in health or legal professions.

Women’s studies majors and minors are encouraged to study abroad. Specific courses taken abroad may substitute for St. Thomas requirements. See the director of women’s studies, a study abroad advisor in the International Education Center, or Academic Information & Programs in the front section of this catalog for program options.
