Gender and Women’s Studies Program

A collaboration between the Women’s Resource Center and various BMCC faculty led to the creation of a Gender and Women’s Studies program at BMCC. Professor Brianne Waychoff, Department of Speech, Communications and Theatre Arts, and Professor Amy Sodaro, Department of Social Sciences, Human Services and Criminal Justice, were instrumental in establishing this interdisciplinary major leading to an Associate in Arts degree.
