Women’s Studies Program
Women’s studies is an interdisciplinary field of study which questions the traditional attitudes towards women and offers a new understanding of and perspectives on women. The primary objectives of women’s studies are:
- to address past scholarly neglect of material by, for, and about women;
- to increase and disseminate knowledge of the behaviors, experiences, and contributions of women in society;
- to examine critically and evaluate the assumptions and theories held about women in society in the traditional disciplines, as well as current interdisciplinary approaches to the study of women;
- to provide an expanded vision of women’s future roles and opportunities and foster an awareness of women’s existing abilities and potentials
