Women’s Studies Minor

About Us

The Women’s Studies program enables students to achieve a more complete understanding of human experience through a variety of disciplines. It broadens the education of female and male students by introducing new areas for intellectual inquiry and developing new critical and creative skills. As an interdisciplinary program, this undergraduate program complements virtually any major and can contribute significantly to students’ personal growth. Regis classes are conducted in a university setting, but are kept small to ensure each student receives a personalized experience during his or her studies.

The overall goal of the Women’s Studies program is to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries and integrate the contributions, realities, values, and perspectives of women into courses that explore the human experience.

The Women’s Studies program annually awards the Mary C. Bryan Women’s Studies Award, which is given for student works which in some way enhance an understanding of women’s experience. All students enrolled in a degree program at Regis are eligible to submit works for the Mary C. Bryan award.
