Section 101 Women's Health Practicum.
The field of women's health is vast and varied. Therefore this course was developed to address the many ways in which one could plan for a career in women's health. To allow students to gain perspectives on the fields, the course will offer lectures from women's health professionals, discussion forums, as well as a two hour a week practicum component. The goals of this course are: (1) to work on a multi-disciplinary women's health topic that will have: community outreach, advocacy, clinical research, and patient education components; (2) to place students in hands-on learning environment to explore areas of women's health; (3) to initiate community service learning and foster community consciousness and commitment among future health professionals; and (4) to encourage students to explore women's health through experiential learning. The course will include discussion, guest speakers, and readings. Requirements include active class participation, progress reports, midterm paper/project, final paper/project, and a project presentation.

240/Amer. Cult. 240. Introduction to Women's Studies. (3). (HU). (R&E).
Designed as an introduction to the new feminist scholarship on women, this is an interdisciplinary course which acquaints students with key concepts and theoretical frameworks to analyze women's condition. We will explore how women's status has changed over time, but we will concentrate on the situation of contemporary American women. The course will not only provide students with an analysis of women's oppression, but will suggest strategies for ending sexual inequality. Topics include: violence against women, workplace discrimination, the feminization of poverty, health care and sexuality, and the intersections of gender with capitalism, racism, and imperialism.
