Women's Studies at Providence College

Why Study Women’s Studies at Providence College?
At Providence College, women’s studies is a rigorous and interdisciplinary program that places women’s lives, perspectives, and experiences at the center of inquiry. Students actively and reflexively learn about women’s diverse lived realities, struggles, and contributions through the lenses of race, class, gender, sexuality, culture, ethnicity, age, physical condition, and nationality.

The program’s interdisciplinary framework offers students the exciting and expansive opportunity to study women and gender in contemporary, historical, national, and global contexts and to immerse themselves in a wide array of fields across the social and natural sciences, the humanities, and the arts. The Women’s Studies Program also boasts a generous space on campus, inclusive of our own media and literary resources, and one that can be used for small gatherings and meetings of students and faculty, and for group and individual study.
