Women's Studies


Whether it's interning in London, studying in Spain or doing research in Germany, most Hobart and William Smith students will have had some kind of international learning experience before they graduate.

With some planning, Women's Studies majors can travel abroad and still graduate on time. While the Center for Global Education offers abroad programs on six continents, faculty from the Women's Studies department sponsor programs in the Dominican Republic.

Dominican Republic

The Dominican Republic program is designed to offer students interested in Latin America and the Hispanic Caribbean the opportunity to study a vibrant multicultural society from an interdisciplinary perspective. Students will attend classes at Pontifica Universidad Católica Madre y Maestra (PUCMM), recognized as among the finest academic institutions in the Caribbean, and will reside with local families for a full cultural and linguistic immersion experience.



At HWS, students have the freedom to study at any of our Global Education destinations.

The featured abroad programs are recommended by the Women's Studies department based on content of the curricula.
