Women's Studies

An In-Depth Look at the Societal Contributions of Women

The contributions women have made to society are numerous, but so often forgotten or downplayed. Courses in Women's Studies at St. Francis College reclaim and re-frame the meaning of women's roles and achievements.

The minor in Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary track that looks at history, sociology, culture and much more as a way to understand the ways in which sex and gender function in our world.

The Women’s Studies Minor is an outstanding complement to any major, helping students learn to examine topics such as work, parenthood and creativity through the lens of gender.
