Program Overview
The focus of the program is a comparative analysis of issues facing women in science and engineering here in the United States and how those issues are different/similar for women internationally. The program will also provide students the opportunity to explore the broader social, economic, political, and historical contexts of STEM and gender within the US and UK. Students will be enrolled in INST 295 and receive 3-credits towards their International Perspectives requirements in Spring 2018. The class will meet Tuesdays from 4:10-5:30 PM.
