The contribution women have made to society is immeasurable. Understanding women’s history, experiences, and perspectives is critical to understanding who we are as a people today. For the scholar and professional dedicated to exploring these topics, there’s the Women’s Studies program at MCC.
Women’s studies, an intensive interdisciplinary cultural science, challenges students to write well, think critically, and analyze women’s issues effectively. Discussed and critiqued are the historical and contemporary theories and practices of feminism(s). Students examine women’s experiences and perspectives, exploring topics such as history, culture, class, race, ethnicity, sexuality, and gender in order to help bring about equality, understanding, and peace.
