Majoring In Men -- Literally

Posted: Updated:

Many colleges already offer degrees in Women's Studies and Gender Studies -- Male Studies might not be far behind.

The Washington Post recently reported on the website malestudies.org, a so-called "new academic discipline" that a handful of academics are exploring:

It appears that a group of scholars want to open a serious discussion of the challenges facing men in today's society -- inability to go to college being one -- as well as the phenomenon of misandry, the hatred of males.

The website states that Male Studies is in part about "the inner experience of being male" and aims to be "cross-cultural and international in scope."

Wagner College on Staten Island will be hosting a consortium for those interested in the discipline April 7.

What do you think? Would you major in Male Studies?
