The Women's and Gender Studies Program at St. Scholastica provides opportunities for students to think beyond the boundaries of traditional gender roles in academics, in institutions, and in everyday life. The program follows an interdisciplinary approach, encouraging students to explore diverse experiences and perspectives. Students integrate classroom knowledge with hands-on service learning opportunities.
