WOMEN'S STUDIES PROGRAMS
Women’s Studies is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary approach
to the study of women’s experiences, contributions, voices,
and lives. Women’s Studies developed in the 1970s with a growing
recognition by women scholars and activists in all fields
that women had been systematically left out of academic study
in disciplines including history, philosophy, sociology, psychology,
biology, religious studies, and literature.
The Women’s Studies Programs of the COF exemplifies the enrichment
of our academic community made possible by the consortium.
The three colleges of Emmanuel, Simmons, and Wheelock together
offer an exciting range of courses, internships, and faculty
that enable students to pursue their interests, career goals,
and passions. Additional Women’s Studies courses are available
at MCPHS and Mass Art. Students majoring in Women’s Studies
often go on to careers in law, politics, community services,
advocacy agencies, scholarship, and other fields.
