Women's and Gender Studies

An Interdisciplinary Program On Women, Gender, and Sexuality In Society.

The minor in Women’s and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary program of study focusing on how ideas about women, gender, and sexuality operate in and influence society. By looking at the biological, psychological, social, political, and cultural aspects of women, gender, and sexuality within different cultures and professions, the minor endeavors to highlight how ideas about these categories influence literature, the arts, the sciences, business, and technology.

The minor also underscores the contributions women, non-gender conforming, and LGBTQ people have made to these fields and in other areas where they are underrepresented. An integration of coursework and cultural events will prepare students to think critically about how gender and sexuality operate in daily life, appreciate the contributions and struggles women, non-gender conforming, and LGBTQ people have made and endured, and prepare students for futures in social work, health care, business administration, artistic and cultural administration, media, nonprofit work, and graduate school.
