"Feminist Blogging." "Femininity, Beauty, and the Black Female Body." "Funny, You Don't Look Jewish: Race, Gender, and Sexuality in Judaism."
These may sound like the tightly focused titles of students' college theses, but instead, they're entire semester-long courses at some of the country's leading universities. While there's not often a lot of good news about the female experience on college campuses, in this one case, there is: We've come a long way since the 1970s, when The New York Times declared taking a women's studies class a "new college trend" that was totally "in vogue," offering the chance to study "anything from the writings of Louisa Mae Alcott to the influence of pioneer women in the early West." (So inclusive!)
In recent years, women's studies classes have stretched far beyond those confines to address women of many different socioeconomic and racial backgrounds, and to explore more contemporary issues, too. Here, 63 of the most compelling offerings for today's college students to examine the female experience. (Perhaps most encouraging of all: it's not just a small, private liberal arts college thing—there are tons of options from large, public universities on this list, too.)
