The Department of Women's and Gender Studies offers a major, a minor, and a 15-hour certificate in women's studies. Students often choose to double major in women's studies and another area, such as social work or public relations.
The interdisciplinary women's and gender studies program blends a solid liberal arts foundation with courses about the experiences, roles, achievements, and issues impacting women.
