The Alfred University Women's and Gender 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 and Gender Studies Program allows students to pursue interdisciplinary studies by combining course work from a variety of 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 and actively engage in women's and gender issues and history from multiple perspectives. Students in the minor have the opportunity to conduct original research, serve as Alphadelphian staff members, and serve the community through completing internships.
