Women’s Studies Major, BA

The Women’s Studies major is grounded in MUW’s history as America’s first public college for women and its ongoing commitment to academic and leadership development for women. Using an interdisciplinary approach, students in the major critically examine the social construction of gender and the gendered status of women in diverse cultural contexts and time periods. The major emphasizes both scholarly exploration and the application of knowledge to practical women’s issues. Any student graduating with a major in Women’s Studies will be required to earn at least a C in all major courses.
