Gender, Sexuality & Women's Studies| Minor

Gender Studies minor is an interdisciplinary approach to examining the cultural and historical role of women, gender and sexuality in society. This course has an emphasis on critical thinking and writing.

Students will explore the meaning and importance of gender construction and reproduction within structures of inequity and power. Students will also think about these issues alongside issues of intersectionality, including how categories of identity (sexuality, race, ethnicity, class, age, ability, nationality, religion, etc...) interact with gender.
