Women's Studies

The field of Women’s Studies concerns itself with developing critical knowledge and implementing world-building practices of justice and equality in national and transitional contexts. At HWS, students are encouraged to take a multidisciplinary approach and enroll in a wide range of courses, developing theoretical sophistication, cultural and historical awareness, and an understanding of multiple perspectives on gender.
