Welcome to Women's Studies!

Women's Studies is a dynamic interdisciplinary program at Keene State College. We offer a variety of exciting and challenging courses to meet the changing needs of our students as they face an increasingly multicultural and politicized world. Some students take their first women's studies courses as part of the integrative studies curriculum. Many continue to follow their interests through special topics courses that offer new knowledge and perspectives to complement their choice of major.

"It's All Possible"

We offer a minor in women's studies that encourages students to select from courses in the natural and social sciences, arts and humanities, and professional studies as well as women's studies courses. Students also learn feminist theory and they complete a capstone seminar focusing on service learning and activism. Our graduates have gone on to continue their studies and to work as change agents in their communities.

The Women's Studies Council welcomes you to explore our web site. We hope you find these resources helpful and we look forward to working with you whether you are a student, community member or colleague.
