Gender Studies Minor

The gender studies minor is an interdisciplinary group of courses anchored by a shared commitment to the study of how gender shapes our experiences. Students can take courses in a wide range of departments on campus to build a minor that fits with their interests and strengths.

Course topics include Latin American writers, psychology of women, sociology of sexuality, and women in global politics, among others.

The minor is designed to help students bring academic rigor and depth to their interests in gender and sexualities, and to help students identify connections between their own experiences and the gendered experiences of others throughout history and across cultural contexts.

Why pursue a gender studies minor?

Gender studies is helpful to careers and graduate work in law, writing and communications, public policy, non-profit organizations, education, government and service-oriented professions. It also complements and deepens the student’s academic major by adding a crucial dimension of the human experience.
