More and more, women are stepping up to leadership roles in fields as diverse as politics, education, business, health policy, medicine, the arts and the sciences. A major in women’s leadership will help you understand the challenges and opportunities women face locally and globally and will give you the knowledge and skills you need to succeed wherever your interests lie.
