Women's and Gender Studies

Program Description

The Women’s and Gender Studies minor recognizes the centrality of gender to a variety of disciplines, professions, personal experiences, and world views. Students will take coursework in disciplines such as Criminal Justice, History, Literature, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology with an aim of developing an interdisciplinary understanding of issues related to women and gender in contemporary and historical contexts.

By augmenting students’ chosen majors, the Women’s and Gender Studies minor prepares students looking for strong interdisciplinary perspectives along their path to careers and/or further studies in social work, counseling, law, education, business, political science, and the arts, among others.
