Overview

This interdisciplinary Liberal Studies - Women's Studies from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University is what people mean when they extoll the virtues of a great liberal arts education. Our broad, rigorous program prepares our students for impactful careers in a marketplace increasingly in search of liberal arts graduates and for success in graduate programs.

Career

As a graduate of this concentration, you could build upon the education you receive here in further education in gender studies (M.A. and Ph.D.). Then you may work as a professor at a college or university or as a researcher or leader of a social services agency that is oriented toward women's issues. B.A. graduates can seek employment with public or private agencies, organizations and corporations that interact with families, groups of women and individual women. 

Health care providers, public relations agencies, family support agencies, battered women's shelters, rape crisis centers, human development agencies such as those that work with formerly incarcerated women, political organizations and educational institutions are just a few of the employers who seek people who have an interdisciplinary (sociological, psychological, economic, political, religious and cultural) understanding of the historical and present-day status of women.
