Women’s Studies Program at SCSU
by Bina Walker, Graduate Assistant
The Women’s Studies Program at Southern Connecticut State University is committed to integrating scholarly inquiry, critical problem-solving methods, professional training, cooperative leadership skills, and practical strategies for intervention in real-life situations affecting the well-being of women locally and globally. Faculty and students share a commitment to human rights advocacy around the world.
Compatible with many different areas of study, Women’s Studies allows students to explore the nature of women’s status, circumstances, and objectives across the boundaries of academic disciplines, cultures, and historical time periods.
