Women’s studies as an interdisciplinary academic field has emerged in the last 40 years across a broad range of topics, including economics, historical studies, literature, math, psychology, science and sociology. Empire State College has hosted women’s studies residency meetings in conjunction with academic course offerings since the mid-1970s and has continued to evolve as the field itself changes.
Students choose from seven studies using a blended model that combines an online component with one onsite meeting and one virtual online meeting.
While in Saratoga Springs, students will attend plenary sessions and group activities, hear from guest speakers and meet in small group seminars to focus on their selected study.
This unique opportunity will provide students with a broader perspective of issues related to women’s and gender studies and offer a variety of activities to enhance the learning experience.
