What Can You Do with a Degree in Women’s Studies?

Women's Studies provides you with all the benefits of a liberal arts degree.  Liberal arts education emphasizes critical thinking, which can be applied to a multitude of careers.  It demonstrates to a potential employer that you have the confidence, skills, and maturity to earn a college degree; that you are well-rounded, having studied a wide variety of topics rather than one narrow skill area; that you likely are able to think more globally than many other job applicants.  Managers often prefer liberal arts majors because they think they are better at organizing material, writing well, and making oral presentations.

Our graduates pursue a wide range of professions upon completion of their undergraduate degrees, including careers iin health and human services, education,law, government, and criminology.  Double majors say one major defines the field in which they work; Women's Studies defines the focus within that field. 

Many of our graduates also pursue graduate education in fields such as administration, anthropology, counseling, education, fine arts, history, humanities, international studies, law, library science, philosophy, psychology, political science, public health, public policy, social work, and sociology.
