There are * 652 women’s and gender studies programs at community colleges, colleges, and universities in the U.S.
In 1981, the Women’s Studies Program was approved by ASCAP as an interdisciplinary program. Two students decided to pursue the minor that year. As of today, the program has grown to include curriculum for credit toward the Core Curriculum in the area of the Humanities and Social and Behavioral Sciences.
Additionally, since 2006 the Women’s Studies Program participates in the Graduate Certificate Program (GCP), offering a specialist inter-disciplinary sub-field in women’s, gender, and identity studies for doctoral and master’s degree candidates. The GCP also functions as a stand-alone credential useful for professionals.
