Women's and Gender Studies Minor

Students can pursue an 18-hour minor, providing them with 15 hours of courses and a 3-hour capstone seminar in Women's Studies. The capstone seminar surveys feminist research methods and gives students the opportunity to design a research project of their choice. The Introduction to Women's Studies serves as a foundation course to frame students' experience for subsequent courses.

Vision Statement 

The Women's Studies Program aspires to teaching, scholarship and activism that inspires excellent writing, effective speaking, critical thinking, and the ability to use gender and sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, class, and physical and mental ability as categories of analysis in personal, local, national, and international contexts.
