The Women’s Studies Program at Illinois Wesleyan offers feminist perspectives on the human experience, analyzes the role of women in history, challenges cultural assumptions about women, emphasizes the contributions of women and discusses the larger, global disadvantages that are faced by women in the United States and abroad.
Because Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary program, our courses are offered by departments across the curriculum. Courses are open to all students, regardless of gender, and most offer general education credit to meet diverse IWU requirements.
Our alumnae and alumni go on to pursue graduate school and/or build careers in such areas as education, government, social work, history, law, business, health care, psychology, religion and literature.

This is just an example of a four-year plan for WS; your actual schedule can/will deviate from this sample. Your faculty advisor will work with you to match appropriate courses with your interests. Please consult with the WS Director if any questions arise.
Once enrolled, all students will have a degree evaluation tool available to them on MyIWU. This will help you determine what courses are required to graduate on time.
