Bachelor of Arts in Women’s Studies Online Degree Completion Program
Women’s studies is an interdisciplinary area of scholarship and research that raises questions often ignored or marginalized in traditional academic disciplines. The Bachelor of Arts in Women’s Studies Online Degree Completion Program (Online BA-WOST) is designed to acquaint students with feminist scholarship on women, gender, sexuality, research methods, and theory. Course offerings in women’s studies examine the ways in which gender is culturally constructed; and the relationship between gender and other systems of social difference such as race, ethnicity, class, nationality, and sexual orientation. The program builds on several decades of feminist work in women’s studies, and deliberately integrates theory, research methods, and service learning.
Undergraduate courses in women's studies ensure that students receive an interdisciplinary education that bridges theory and practice. A two-quarter field-study seminar allows students to apply theory and methods, and combine scholarship and social action, to a setting of their choice. Electives in the social sciences, sciences, and humanities increase the interdisciplinary strength of the program.
