What will women’s studies give me?

Awareness of the issues facing women -- and the world -- today.

Critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

Strong writing and researching abilities.

A solid base on which to enter the workforce, pursue further education and have an impact in the world.

Many women’s studies students often use their skills to benefit their local communities, and make a commitment to making the lives of women, men and children better, such as counseling victims of domestic violence, working on rape crisis hotlines, and other service projects.
