If you have never taken a Women's Studies class or are thinking about majoring or minoring in Women's Studies, read below for what some of our past students have to say about being a Women's Studies student.

Brooke Being a part of Women’s Studies at CSUS has transformed me. Not only have I gained numerous skills that will further my educational, and career goals, but I have also been given the tools to fight against the social injustices affecting women on a local as well as global scale. Brooke S. Davis,
Women’s Studies major
Ruth Women’s Studies is essential for a complete college education. It has provided me a strong framework and support system that has enabled me to think critically. This ability has empowered me to formulate a more inclusive world view, igniting a passion for social change and celebrating choices within all aspects of my life Ruth Breech,
Women’s Studies major
Ebony I am just passionate about the study. I switched from English to Women’s Studies, because I want to improve the status of women and be educated enough to understand the real battle. Ebony Aaron,
Women’s Studies major
Cindy I’ve learned more from the few classes I took for my minor than in all my other classes combined. I learned about different types of oppression, different groups that are oppressed, different reactions to oppression, different results of oppression and different ways to fight oppression.

Joanne I have switched majors four or five times and I have finally found the major that intrigues me the most. Women’s Studies gives me the “other side” of current events that most people never hear. Joanne Ahola,
