Director: Jennifer M. Lloyd, Ph.D., University of Rochester.

Graduate work in Women's Studies can be undertaken through the Masters of Arts in Liberal Studies (MALS) degree. Utilizing MALS seminars and graduate-level women's studies courses, students can design a program of study that concentrates on their areas of interest within Women's Studies. Because Women's Studies courses are cross-listed with their home departments, students have considerable flexibility in course selection. Students may also focus attention on a particular aspect of Women's Studies by independent study at two levels (WMS 599 and WMS 699). Graduate courses in Women's Studies may also be taken, under advisement, as electives in other MA programs. For information and assistance, please contact the director of the MALS program or the Director of Women's Studies.
