The Women's Studies Program encourages inquiry into the full range of the human experience by raising new questions and opening new areas of research concerning women. The discipline enriches the traditional liberal arts curriculum by adding new perspectives on women's lives and accomplishments.
Women's Studies can broaden the education of both male and female students by helping them to understand the limitations placed on both sexes by narrowly defined sex roles. Wherever there is a need to understand women and an interest in the new role they are playing in society, Women's Studies can enhance a student's career preparation and opportunities.
