Women's Studies

A student who understands the particular roles, experiences, and challenges of women in the U.S. and around the world will realize that gender is extremely important in society. For this reason, at North Carolina A&T State University, the introduction of the Women's Studies Concentration represents one of the truly exciting and innovative curriculum changes.

As a graduate of this concentration, you could build upon the education you receive here in further education in gender studies (M.A. and Ph.D.). Then you may work as a professor at a college or university or as a researcher or leader of a social services agency that is oriented toward women's issues. B.A. graduates can seek employment with public or private agencies, organizations and corporations that interact with families, groups of women and individual women. Health care providers, public relations agencies, family support agencies, battered women's shelters, rape crisis centers, human development agencies such as those that work with formerly incarcerated women, political organizations and educational institutions are just a few of the employers who seek people who have an interdisciplinary (sociological, psychological, economic, political, religious and cultural) understanding of the historical and present-day status of women.

The roles and perspectives of women, who make up more than 50 percent of the world's population, have changed. Women's Studies graduates help all of society adjust to - indeed, make use of - those changes.
