WS 2301   Women's & Gender Studies   This course enhances student?s knowledge, interest, and understanding of the contributions, challenges, needs, and aspirations of women and the way that gender shapes the lives of both women and men. It also seeks to re-examine material from much of the rest of the curriculum with a focus on women's perspectives and an awareness of the gender system, and as such, we will also focus on several different issues of masculinity. Therefore, half of the course will focus on women, the other on men. The "modest proposal" in Women's Studies then is study of history, language, literature, and culture from new and illuminating perspectives.
