The Women's Studies program will provide a praxis-driven, interdisciplinary, intersectional, feminist academic experience that prepares students to identify, analyze, reflect on and engage global and local issues, in order to challenge injustice.
- Vision Statement, August 2010

 Women’s Studies is an integral part of the curriculum of Agnes Scott College. Fully one-quarter of the Agnes Scott faculty teaches courses cross-listed in the Women’s Studies program. Women’s Studies courses invite students to explore gender and its intersections with sexuality, race and ethnicity, nationality and class. Women’s experiences are analyzed from the perspective of the humanities, fine arts, and social and natural sciences, and from interdisciplinary perspectives. In the process, students are exposed to feminist theory from across the disciplines. Controversial issues are approached from various viewpoints, inspiring lively classroom debate and critical thinking.  Increased knowledge about women and gender, a commitment to social justice, honed critical thinking skills and effective oral and written expression are goals of the program.
