A minor in women’s and gender studies merges the academic journey with the personal one. It recognizes gender as a primary category that organizes and directs our lives. By combining courses across disciplines, the program exposes students to a variety of perspectives and research methods. It permits individuals to develop their own interests as they analyze and deepen their understanding of gender in their everyday lives and in the world. The minor will enhance students’ sense of personal identity and their competence in any occupation. It will enrich their experiences as citizens in a diverse and changing world.
