Requirements for minor:


The Gender Studies minor provides a broad range of theories, concepts, and cases that will allow students to begin to understand the complex issues related to gender in society, how these differ across cultures, and provide students a background in Gender Studies as a discipline. Students have the option to choose from a large list of courses to complete their Minor, providing each student the opportunity to focus on particular elements of Gender Studies.
