Women’s and Gender Studies (Minor)
To see more about what you will learn in this program, visit the Learning Outcomes website!
The Women’s and Gender Studies Minor offers all students in the university the possibility of rigorous interdisciplinary study of women’s and gender issues. Course offerings across the campus give students the opportunity to understand the complex relationships between gender, class, ethnic, and race structures; to understand feminist theory and methodological perspectives and their substantial contributions to social and public policy analysis; to develop the ability to reach out to community and non-profit organizations concerned with social equality; and to develop international understandings and perspectives.
Admissions and Certification of Minor
To complete a WGS minor is a simple process but it’s a good idea to get the paperwork in progress. Download the “Declare a Minor” form available here in PDF format. The form must be signed by the Director of WGS and by the CHASS Dean’s Office. It is then forwarded to the student’s home department.
