Why Women's Studies?
The Women's Studies Program at Wittenberg University provides a forum for students and scholars in different disciplines to share their interests, concerns, and methodologies in a rich inquiry into one virtually important topic--the status and accomplishments of women. In pursuing this goal, the Program recognizes and encourages alternative ways of thinking about both disciplines and pedagogy, presents previously ignored or misrepresented information about women across the disciplines, and promotes the student's personal growth through academic inquiry.
Students report many different reasons for minoring in Women's Studies. Some discover the interest gradually when they choose courses for general education requirements. Others choose Women's Studies as a minor because it supplements their major in a particularly enriching way. Others minor in Women's Studies because of their career goals--they may want to work in domestic law or women's health care. Almost all students recognize a component of personal growth and self-awareness in the minor.
