Empower yourself! Empower your community!
Study with students from around the world at Catherine of Siena Virtual College!
We are an international college working to empower women for life and leadership through high quality women's and gender studies education. Our inter-disciplinary courses promote gender equality, as well as, intercultural and inter-religious understanding and respect.
We are different than other online study programs!
We combine the best information technology with a student-focused, community-centered approach that takes seriously the way authentic, transformational learning occurs. We create small interactive communities where students from around the world find the safety and support they need to examine issues that are important to their lives. Those who take our courses find that they have not only gained new knowledge and awareness, but they have gained new skills and confidence for making positive changes in their lives, in their communities and in the world around them!
Take a class for credit or just for the love of learning!
There are many courses to choose from such as Violence Against Women: Global Realities and Responses, Women Writing, Changing Lives, Ecology, Women and the Future of the Earth, and more. Take a class, meet students from around the world, and enter into a modern educational experience that honors who we are as human beings connected across geographic, cultural and religious boundaries!
