Concentration in Women’s Studies
Requirements: 15 credits
The Women’s Studies concentration is interdisciplinary; it uses a broad variety of academic disciplines in achieving its goals. Students are required to take a total of five Women’s Studies courses from at least two disciplines. It is recommended that students take an introductory course such as WO/UR 103: Introduction to Women’s Studies or WO/PH 150: Women in Western Ideas. Students are also encouraged to engage in some sort of specialized experience such as an independent study, a directed readings course leading to a major paper, a creative project or an internship. Students in Women’s Studies may use courses to simultaneously count for a concentration in Women’s Studies and other Worcester State University requirements.
