About the Program
The women’s studies program at Hofstra University offers interdisciplinary courses taught by fulltime faculty in the arts, humanities, and social sciences who have expertise in women’s and gender issues. Many of these courses fulfill the university’s interdisciplinary distribution requirement. Hofstra offers a major and a minor in women’s studies, both of which are composed of women’s studies courses and courses offered by departments across the disciplines that address women's and gender issues. Students who major in women's studies can elect a double major in another academic discipline. The internship component of the major provides students with practical experience that will benefit them as they seek job placement upon graduation.
