For the first time, we are making available in a single format, and for future distribution, the WOMEN'S STUDIES PROGRAM list and the annotated list of CENTERS FOR RESEARCH ON WOMEN. All correspondence about the listing of Centers for Research on Women (corrections, additions, etc.) should be addressed to Florence Howe, Editor, Women's Studies Quarterly; all correspondence about the listing of Women's Studies Programs (corrections, additions, etc.) should be addressed to Elaine Reuben, National Coordinator, NWSA.
Most of the Women's Studies Programs listed below are interdisciplinary; i.e., they combine courses in literature, language, or culture with work in sociology, anthropology, economics, political science, history, philosophy, psychology, biology and related fields. Many offer interdisciplinary courses as well as internships. Some programs offer minors (denoted by Min) or graduate minors (denoted by Grad Min), or certificate (denoted by Cer); others offer major concentrations in women's studies or award A.A., B.A., M.A., or Ph. D. degrees. Programs listed without a specific label offer or coordinate elective courses. Where no coordinator, director, or chairperson is listed, the program may be in the process of organization, or it may have chosen to function through a committee, or to rotate the administrative function.
This list is maintained and published as an educational service of the National Women's Studies Association (NWSA, University of Maryland, College Park, MD 20742) and of the Women's Studies Quarterly (The Feminist Press, Box 334, Old Westbury, NY 11568). Compilers for 1981 were Elaine Reuben for NWSA and Florence Howe for the Women Studies Quarterly. For additional copies of this list, send $1.50 in check or money order to NWSA or the Women Studies Quarterly.
