The Program offers an undergraduate major, secondary major, and minor, and an interdisciplinary honors program that is open to undergraduates in all majors. Additionally, the program offers a PhD minor that is open to all students currently enrolled in a doctoral program at Stanford.

Each student builds an individual program of study.  The four most common subplans are Arts & Culture, Global Studies, Health, and LGBT/Queer Studies; students identify their focus within their chosen subplan.

The Program encourages work in the arts and supports creative honors theses.

I decided to major in Feminist Studies as well as History because Feminist Studies allows me to incorporate an academic analysis of oppression and social change into my field of study. Feminist Studies has helped me to think critically about the way we do history and some of the problems of traditional scholarship.
