Frequently Asked Questions

Why haven't I heard of Women’s Studies?

Women’s Studies is a relatively new interdisciplinary program of scholarship and teaching. Individuals in certain disciplines, such as English and history, are more likely to be introduced to Women’s Studies. Students and faculty in the natural sciences and in business are less familiar with the program. We are committed to increasing course development in these areas and to advertising our program.

Does IUP have a major in Women’s Studies?

No. We offer only a minor program of study.

Does IUP have a graduate program in Women’s Studies?

There are several courses on women and gender offered within graduate programs at IUP. To date, there has been no coordination or cross listing of these courses. However, Women’s Studies faculty are investigating the possibility of awarding certificates of advanced study in Women’s Studies.

Can I do an internship in Women’s Studies?

Yes. Women’s Studies has received approval to award up to three credits for an internship within a student’s major field of study to be credited toward the Women’s Studies minor. Plans are underway to coordinate internships abroad.
