Women's Studies Minor


Women’s studies is an interdisciplinary field that grew out of the recognition that the experience and potential of over half the world’s population has real consequences for academic study and teaching, research and scholarship. By considering women-both-as subjects of inquiry and as inquiring subjects, we have discovered new ways of thinking about gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity and their intersections in disciplines, for a total of 21 credit hours.
