Women’s & Gender Studies


About the Program

Increase your knowledge, interest and appreciation of the needs, contributions, problems and aspirations of women – and also the way that gender shapes the lives of both women and men.

Why this minor?

Women’s and gender studies will enhance any major from the perspective of women and gender. You’ll take courses that emphasize cultural diversity and the varied experiences faced by women in the United States and the world. The interdisciplinary nature of the minor provides an opportunity to examine a variety of theoretical/critical perspectives such as historical, sociological, legal, psychological, ethnographic, scientific, political and aesthetic.
