The Women’s Studies program provides students with the opportunity to critically examine women’s contributions and experiences in various historical and cultural contexts. This is an inter-college program with course offerings at Augsburg College, Hamline University, St. Catherine University, and the University of St. Thomas. Courses are drawn from many disciplines and combine theoretical, practical, and research components that focus not only on gender, but also acknowledge that race, class, ability, and sexual identity are crucial aspects of women’s experiences. The Women’s Studies program offers a major, a minor, and two concentrations, providing students with academic preparation for careers in human services, education, and social work as well as graduate study.
