LHU Women and Gender Studies
The Women and Gender Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program taught by faculty from a variety of departments on Lock Haven's campus.
The Women and Gender Studies program allows students to graduate with an undergraduate minor in Women and Gender Studies. At present, the minor offers students the opportunity to follow three different pathways based on the Introductory course that they take.
Pathway 1: Women's Studies (Introduction to Women's Studies and other courses with a total of 18 credits)
Pathway 2: Gender Studies (Introduction to LGBTQA Studies and other courses with a total of 18 credits)
Pathway 3: Women and Gender Studies (Introduction to Women's Studies and Introduction to LGBTQ Studies with a total of 18 credits)
Each pathway and the minor itself is worth 18 semester credit hours. As the program is interdisciplinary in nature, a student with a minor in Women and Gender Studies would take a variety of courses offered by multiple departments. The courses offered vary from semester to semester. For more information on the Women and Gender Studies Minor, please visit our As a Minor page. To view the courses being offered each semester, please visit our Course Offerings page. To find out about the faculty who frequently offer Women's Studies courses, visit our Faculty Biographies page.
We are excited to offer a new scholarship in gender issues made possible by the generous gift of Associate Professor Emerita Virginia Martin. For more information on the scholarship, please contact email@example.com
A second focus of the program is to offer on-campus events that discuss gender issues in society. These may include evening lectures or "brown bag" discussions. For more information regarding the Women and Gender Studies events, visit our Events page. We have events planned through out the year, so be sure to check the events regularly for updates!

Finally, the Women and Gender Studies program focuses on improving the quality of life for all individuals, through an understanding of the social, economic, and political factors that influence women and men. To that end, we have a resources page, which provides information about various opportunities and resources available to Lock Haven students. One example of these opportunities is the day care discount open to parent-students who choose to enroll their children in select area day cares.
