Gender Studies

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

The Gender Studies minor is 18 semester credit hours.
