The Centre of Excellence for Women's Studies (CEWS) at the University of Karachi is the leading centre in the field of teaching and research in Women's Studies in Pakistan. Established as a project in 1989 by the Ministry of Women Development, Government of Pakistan, CEWS has a special appeal for students from all over the country. In 2002 Centre initiated M.Phil / Ph.D programme. In 2004 it has introduced Women's Studies as a subsidiary course at First Year (Hons.) level. From 2007 BS (Hons.) 4 years programme was launched and from 2009 MS / Ph. D classes have started. In 2010 M.A (Evening) programme was also started.
Inspired by our guiding motto that Women's Studies is a catalyst for change, we at the Centre remain engaged in bridging the gap between academic knowledge about women and their every-day life experiences. Innovative courses and seminars offered at the Centre and research conducted here aims at generating a functional knowledge base with the purpose of identifying hitherto under-used and neglected human resources for national growth.
