Similar to the major, the Women's and Gender Studies minor includes three basic social analysis courses aimed at providing students with a gendered lens through which to see social, cultural, and political issues. Students are encouraged to expand their view of their personal lives to include a framework that promotes resilient responses to all forms of oppression. To complete the minor, students take three additional courses to be chosen from the approved course list from the Women's and Gender Studies Department.
Students wishing to attain the Women's and Gender Studies minor are required to successfully complete 24 credit hours (six classes): the three core classes listed below and three general electives approved for the Women's and Gender Studies major.
Students majoring in Women's and Gender Studies (B.A.) are restricted from earning this minor.
