A new look at old ideas
In the past, many courses focused almost exclusively on male ideas, perspectives, and achievements. In addition, academic scholarship often contained unexamined biases about women and people from diverse backgrounds. Women's Studies restores balance to the classroom by exploring some fascinating questions about our understanding of women and gender.
Women's Studies courses ask new questions. Students reconsider a variety of interpretations of the female experience in many cultures and groups, during many periods of history, and in many different disciplines. The program provides students and faculty with a supportive intellectual climate for asking new questions, challenging many ideas and methodologies, and pursuing areas of interest about women's lives and their contributions.
