• Double-Major in Legal Studies and Women’s Studies

    The interdisciplinary double major in legal studies and women’s studies provides students with a unique program of study combining learning experiences in both fields, allowing them to explore intersections between the law and other areas such as gender, sexuality, race, class, and ability. Because we live in a world with a number of justice issues present, a double major in legal studies and women’s studies provides students with both practical and theoretical tools for making social change in the pursuit of creating a better world for everyone.

    By pursuing the double major, students develop both legal and cultural competencies that will allow them to engage in a variety of opportunities in the law, public policy, non-profit work, human services, legislative initiatives, human rights, or social service. With advanced planning, students are able to use complimentary coursework from both of these academic areas to satisfy the requirements of this vibrant double major.

    Greta Konkler"I had the amazing opportunity to intern for Gender Justice, a nonprofit law organization that works on cases based on gender discrimination. The Legal Studies & Women's Studies double major...opened up the doors for me to combine these two areas in my coursework and practicum experience.”
