Frequently Asked Questions

What can you do with a degree in Women’s and Gender Studies?
Like other degree programs in the liberal arts, Women’s and Gender Studies will prepare students for a wide range of careers by developing skills of analysis and expression while fostering an understanding of fundamental dynamics in contemporary society.  In one survey of CofC’s WGS alumni, 53% of respondents reported that they use what they learned in WGS in their current work “regularly,” while 23% reported that they “occasionally” do.  We have already placed former students in such agencies and organizations as People Against Rape, My Sister’s House, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, Skirt! magazine, the Center for Women in Charleston, the National Organization for Women, and with companies such as Blue Cross Blue Shield, Marriott, the Glover Park Group, and Weber Shandwick.
