Berea makes its mark on this top women's studies undergraduate degrees ranking for a few distinct reasons. First, it's a Christian school with a proud history of providing an interracial and coed education in Kentucky. It's also a "no-tuition" college; a generous endowment and frugal spirit mean that student expenses are practically nonexistent. Like all Berea's majors, the Women's and Gender Studies program reflects the school's guiding principles. This includes participation in the Student Labor Program, an initiative that works doubly to offset tuition costs and uphold the school's strong Christian work ethic. To add to this practical experience, Berea encourages undergrads to participate in internships and directed study courses that help translate theoretical knowledge into real-world skills.
