Women's Studies

What is Women's Studies?

Women's Studies at UWG is an interdisciplinary program designed to introduce students to feminist scholarship which emphasizes the cross-cultural understanding of the social, political and cultural experiences of women. Women's Studies seeks to critically analyze the intersection/interaction of gender, race, class and power across time and space. Our program draws faculty from a variety of different disciplines within and outside of the Social Sciences in order to provide students with valuable training in interdisciplinary practice.
