Minor in Women's Studies
Our minor in women’s studies provides you with a framework for examining women’s and men’s lives within individual, familial, national and global systems. Employers often prioritize hiring candidates who appreciate and respect diversity and who are able to successfully work with diverse populations.
The courses will challenge you to reconsider assumptions about women and men. You’ll analyze the complex intersections of individual and cultural factors, such as gender, sex, race, ethnicity, class, sexual orientation, age, religion and ability, and how they relate to power and social justice.
As a student in this program, you’ll have the opportunity to expand your knowledge of the experiences of groups that are not often highlighted in traditional curricula. As a result of increased knowledge, new perspectives and self-reflection, you will gain a greater understanding of yourself and a greater respect for diverse populations.
