Women's Studies Program

414/415 Hill Hall (973/353-1026)

Program Director: Jyl J. Josephson

The major in women's studies is offered at NCAS. The minor in women's studies is offered at NCAS and UC-N.

The interdisciplinary women's studies program provides a framework for the study of gender and questions of culture, history, politics, and economics. Women's studies courses also integrate scholarship on race, ethnicity, sexuality, and class together with perspectives on gender. The women's studies program is an interdisciplinary program, and the scholarship of women's studies has transformed teaching and learning in many disciplines in the humanities, social sciences, fine arts, and sciences. Women's studies courses emphasize active learning and critical thinking, and address the diversity of women's experiences based on race, ethnicity, religion, nationality, and sexual orientation.

A variety of courses, including 21&62:988:201,202 Introduction to Women's Studies and 21&62:988:389,390 Topics in Women's Studies, are available to students who wish to direct their future career plans, studies, and research into fields requiring knowledge of the new scholarship on women and gender.

Students also are required to pursue a research project and/or an internship.

The Independent Research in Women's Studies (21&62:988:401) requires a substantial written project, while the Women's Studies Internship (21&62:988:425) involves ongoing organizational work in the campus community or outside agencies.

Students may wish to consider a double major that combines women's studies with anotherdiscipline.

A minor in women's studies is an excellent complement to many majors, including social work, psychology, political science, English, business, nursing, history, and liberal studies.
