Additional Information

The Women's Studies Program introduces the past and present achievements and experiences of women from an interdisciplinary and global perspective. The program explores the decisive role that gender has played and continues to play in human societies and contributes to an understanding of women's lives. Knowledge derived from women's studies courses will enable people to analyze current problems that women face in the areas of employment, the family, domestic violence, health and the legal system. Since women comprise more than half of the world's population, an understanding of their experiences, history, needs and abilities is an asset to students considering careers in such fields as education, social service, government, business, law, the ministry, journalism, health occupations and childcare.

To see how you will transfer into PSU's University Studies program, refer to General Education. We highly encourage you to talk with a PCC Academic Advisor to learn more about meeting PSU's general education and bachelor degree requirements.

PCC endeavors to create accurate transfer guides for students; however, requirements may change without notice. Students are responsible for working with PCC advisors and their transfer institution to ensure that their academic plan will meet requirements and timelines.
