    The Women’s Studies course will examine women in American history and their specific influence events, society and culture.  Students will discuss political movements, involvement with social issues, designated responsibilities within the family, public roles and private expectations.  They will also explore limitations or actions resulting from women’s place within a stratified society and perceptions of specific time, and cultures. Although the course is inclusive of the role of both genders within the context of history, the majority of discussion and debate will revolve around women’s roles and contributions.  Additional work will be required for students who choose to complete this course at the Honors level, including readings, reports, and a major research paper.
