  • Courses #2 – #5: Students take four additional elective courses with a Gender Studies designation over their four years at Loyola.
  • Course #6: Students take a capstone course upon completion of their electives. (The capstone can be taken concurrently.)


  • Of the four elective courses, no more than two can be in the same department.
  • Of all of the six Gender Studies courses in the minor, no more than two can count towards the student’s major or second minor.
