The Women’s and Gender Studies Program in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is cross-disciplinary, offering a minor and major in "Women's Studies". This program provides an opportunity for students to examine gender and women’s roles, contributions, and status in social and cultural context and to investigate a variety of disciplines from feminist perspectives. The field of women's and gender studies creates an understanding that interrelated factors,  e.g., race, ethnicity, class, age, disability, gender identity, religion, national origin, and sexual orientation, inform knowledge of women’s history, culture, and social roles.
