Requirements

This is an 18-credit hour cross disciplinary program that explores the scholarship related to gender and equity issues affecting women. In particular, women’s and gender studies is concerned with gender as it intersects with multiple categories such as race/ethnicity, sexuality, economic class and age. This concern is framed by recognition of increased globalization and technological growth impacting social institutions and gendered identities. Students in women’s and gender studies will develop academic frameworks for understanding gender, diversity and social justice; they will acquire knowledge and skills that prepare them for careers in advocacy and communications. This minor includes one required course, WGS 200.
