Gender Studies Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Instruction: Majors & Minors

The Gender Studies minor provides students with practical tools to critically engage constructions and representations of gender in sociological, literary, political, religious, psychological, and communicative processes. In the minor, students explore gender and sexuality from historical and contemporary perspectives. Students will learn about intersections of gender, sex, orientation, class, and race; historically unrecognized societal contributions of women; and the role power and privilege play in individual and institutional identities. As a complement to any major, the gender studies minor enhances students' critical thinking and civic engagement.
