CSUSM Women’s Studies students explore profound themes in a feminist, interdisciplinary, academically rigorous program.
WMST Curriculum and Career Preparation
Our Women’s Studies Department offers courses that examine gender in relation to race, class, sexuality, and other identity markers, in national and international contexts. Our students gain a solid academic foundation on which they then develop the professional skills necessary for rewarding employment in the 21st century. Analytical thinking, writing, teamwork, and research skills prepare Women’s Studies students for careers in diverse areas: education, international relations, health, counseling, law, human resources, social services, journalism, and public safety, among others.
