Women's Studies Program
The Women's Studies Program was started in Spring 1989. It grew out of a curriculum integration project that was launched in the late 1980s. The development of the Women's Studies Program was largely a grassroots effort supported by faculty from all over the University of Alaska Anchorage. Originally the Program was housed in CCCE, but in Fall 1993, it came under the jurisdiction of the College of Arts and Sciences, as an interdisciplinary minor.
The strength of the Women's Studies Program comes from its 50-plus affiliated faculty members who teach in disciplines including English, History, Sociology, Nursing, Philosophy, Alaska Native Studies, Anthropology, Journalism, Social Work, Languages, Math, Communication, Theater, Psychology, and the Justice Center.
