Minor in Gender Studies

The Gender Studies minor is designed to examine the ways that gender as a complex social construction intersects with class, race, age, ethnicity, nationality, sexual orientation and sexual identity; to examine the lives and experiences of groups that have been underrepresented in traditional academic work; and to acquaint students with the fundamental methodologies of women’s and gender studies.

The Gender Studies minor is 18 semester credit hours.
