Our Brief Description of Women's Studies

Women’s Studies, an interdisciplinary program, emphasizes gender as a critical category of human knowledge that interacts with the complexities of social, racial, sexual, economic, ethnic, religious, and national diversity.

Women’s Studies has transformed knowledge in most fields by correcting centuries of neglect through deliberate research into women’s lives and achievements, whether in science, philosophy, literature, art, religion, economics, or government.

Numerous faculty members, using diverse methodologies, offer courses in various departments that also can count toward the concentration. 

The Center for Women’s Studies provides classrooms, a library, lounge, and offices for the director, program assistant, and student workers. 

Dialogue among students, faculty, and staff at the Center and throughout the program is encouraged by discussion groups, lectures, films, symposia, service activities, and action projects.  

As stated in the Viewbook and Colgate Catalogue, approved September 2003, by members of the Women’s Studies faculty.
