The Alfred University Women's Studies Program builds on a unique institutional feminist history; Alfred was the second co-educational college in the United States and the first in New York State.

The Women's Studies Program allows students to pursue interdisciplinary studies by combining course work from a variety of traditional disciplines with courses specifically designed for the program.

The program offers access to a variety of conceptual frameworks, experiences, personal styles, ideas, and issues. It encourages students to explore women's issues and women's history from multiple perspectives. Students in the minor have the opportunity to complete original research, support the program as Alphadelphian staff members, and serve the community through Women's Studies internships.
