About Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies

The minor in Women’s and Gender Studies introduces students to the dynamic international body of knowledge and creative work about women and gender which have emerged since the 1970s. Students work with femininity and masculinity as social categories, and become acquainted with the current realities and history of feminism and gender in the U.S. and worldwide. Courses in Women’s and Gender Studies are often settings which enable students to formulate educational and career objectives based on a clearer sense of their social world, their own strengths, and their special values. The minor is a logical component of a student’s preparation for a career in law, business, public health, the social services, and teaching.
