Professional Opportunities

A minor in women's studies gives students a better understanding of concepts of gender, race, ethnicity, and socio-economic class from a historical perspective and in the contemporary world, thereby preparing students for work in diverse fields, particularly people oriented careers. Women's studies offers a solid background for careers in fields such as law, international affairs, teaching, personnel management, family and child welfare, and work in local and state agencies addressing the needs of girls and women.
