The Women’s Studies Program is designed to promote an understanding and appreciation of women in contemporary society, as well as gender-related issues. The program is multi-disciplinary in nature and includes coursework and occasional workshops of relevance and importance to women as well as men who care about the women in their lives. The role of women is viewed from such perspectives as literature, philosophy, psychology, sociology, religion, humanities and athletics. Students can incorporate an emphasis on Women’s Studies into any program of study at Lewis. Both men and women are encouraged to participate in the Women’s Studies Program.
