Students and parents alike ask this question. Our response is that as in other Liberal Arts majors, Women's Studies students learn critical thinking skills, a body of knowledge about humankind, and valuable writing and oral expression skills. These skills and this body of knowledge can then be applied to a variety of jobs and careers.
Recent Women's Studies graduates at LMU have gone into a variety of positions, including psychological counseling, web design, middle school teaching, banking, government, and business management. Other graduates have gone on to do post-graduate work in English, law, and other fields.
