About Women's Studies

Women's Studies at UWP is an interdisciplinary academic field that examines the contributions of women to history, science, and the arts, and analyzes prevalent societal misconceptions about sex and gender. In order to gain a complex understanding of these issues, we offer courses in a variety of departments. Women's Studies faculty, both male and female, are committed to exploring why traditional disciplines often exclude women's perspectives and to strengthening student's knowledge about themselves. Committed and considerate teachers, professors teaching in our program, strive to provide high-quality undergraduate education for women and men facing the challenges of the 21st centruy and an increasingly globalized world.
