The Senior Program

Seniors in women's studies pursue a one-semester senior project that can take the form of either a written thesis or some form of performance. Students work independently on the senior project, but they are supervised by one or more faculty members. The senior project represents a culmination of each student’s undergraduate experience; it synthesizes coursework, discussion and personal reflection into a focused statement of intellectual growth and insight.

Recent senior projects include:

  • Access to Dental Care vis a vis Race, Class and Gender in the United States
  • Empowerment and Perception: The Past, Present, and Future of Midwifery in the United States
  • Sexual Harassment in Egypt: A Social Epidemic and a Political Weapon
  • Trans*formation: A Study of Partners of Transmasculine Individuals
  • “Choosing the Best”: Scripting Rape Culture in Public School Sex Education Programs
  • Pornography: A Feminist Analysis of its Effects on Women
  • Re-Examining the Battlefield: Gendered Intersections of Militarization and Genocide
