Women's studies at Bluffton University

Bluffton University offers a multidisciplinary minor in women’s studies. This minor allows students to include in their major course of study the experience of women, including the achievements of women and the obstacles they have faced; contemporary issues that affect women’s lives; scholarly writings and creative works by women; and the theological, social, political and psychological methodologies employed to assess women’s lives.

This growing interdisciplinary minor increasingly includes the broader study of gender issues while keeping its primary focus on the diversity and meaning of women’s lives. Courses provide students with an opportunity to study how gender issues and issues of specific concern to women are addressed and understood in various disciplines.
