Coastal Carolina University Approves New Women’s and Gender Studies Degree Program

The Board of Trustees of Coastal Carolina University in Conway, South Carolina has recently approved a new degree program: the Bachelor of Arts/Sciences in Women’s and Gender Studies.

The new program was established to provide students with critical skills and abilities to understand and evaluate the dynamics of identity categories such as gender, race, class, sexual orientation, ability, age, and citizenship status. The Coastal Carolina program is unique in that it offers a bachelor of science degree that focuses on women in STEM. Graduates of this program will be well suited for leadership careers in management, communications, and administration within the STEM community.

The university created this new program in response to the growing need for more diversity in STEM fields. Coastal Carolina officials hope that this STEM focus will serve as a recruitment and retention tool for women who choose to major in STEM fields.
