Your Women and Gender Studies minor will introduce you to crucial societal concepts, enforcing your philosophical and critical thinking skills. Our curriculum is designed to assist you in learning to value life and to explore new ideas.

Our courses include cultural matters that bring racism, classism, homophobia, traditional ideas about gender roles and identities, and other vectors of women’s oppression into focus. We will examine and discuss the social construction of gender and interaction with race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, disability, and age. You will learn about women’s experiences and contributions across cultures, communities, and historical periods.

Regardless of your major, a minor in Women and Gender Studies will broaden your mind with a well-rounded understanding of gender and gender issues. Our courses are interdisciplinary, and many can be counted towards meeting your general education requirements.
