The School of Arts and Science offers a number of electives and a minor concentration in Women’s Studies through most of its departments.

These perspectives are not only personally enlightening, but they are also useful in the pursuit of careers in law, government, psychology, social services, communications, education, business, and medicine, and in preparation for citizenship in a diverse society.
