  • Minor in Women’s and Gender Studies

The Women’s Studies program offers an interdisciplinary minor which is designed to assess and address women’s experience, needs, and achievements. Historically, the significant contributions and experiences of women in Western societies have been unacknowledged, under-represented or assumed to be the same as men’s. In recent decades, a reassessment of women’s roles, achievements, and potential has occurred, coinciding with actual and perceived changes of the place of women in society. The objective of the Women’s and Gender Studies minor is to provide students an opportunity to explore and analyze different dimensions of women’s experience and place in society using a feminist perspective. The minor in Women’s and Gender Studies is open to all bachelor degree candidates. It requires a total of 18 credit hours, consisting of one core course and five electives. Students should consult course descriptions for prerequisites and cross-listing information.


Total credits for a Minor in Women’s and Gender Studies: 18
