Monday, April 27, 10-11:30 a.m.
207 Monroe Hall
Students considering a women's and gender studies degree often times ask: "What can I do with this degree? Will this degree differentiate me from individuals majoring in humanities, communications, English, sociology, or history?" WGS majors are in more places than you would expect-including non-profit and nongovernmental organizations, higher education, politics, human resources, medical and legal fields, businesses and corporations. Join Women's and Gender Studies PhD candidate, Krista Benson, MA; Career Services Internship Coordinator, Romeal Watson, MSW; and Women's and Gender Studies graduate Jamie Hollis who will talk about opportunities and advantages of a Women's and Gender Studies degree. Jessica Willis, PhD, Women's and Gender Studies, is the panel moderator.
