Women & Gender Studies Minor
What is the Women and Gender Studies Minor?
The Women and Gender Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary minor that will enrich your understanding of women’s contributions to society and the role of gender in shaping human life.
By viewing the relationship between gender and power from a variety of perspectives - social, artistic, historical, and scientific - you will begin to grasp the ways in which gender is constructed. The minor also investigates how gender has affected the lives of men and women all over the world and throughout human history.
The minor is a perfect fit if you are planning a career in business, law, politics, international relations, science, health professions, social and community service, or education.
