Women’s Studies Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

Students may earn a minor degree in Women’s Studies, or include Women’s Studies as part of a Distributed Studies degree. The purpose of courses in Women’s Studies is to present issues and disciplines from the perspective of Women’s Studies and familiarize students with scholarship on and by women in all aspects of society. Students are encouraged to explore gender issues in their own lives and the world around them through the lenses of gender, race, class and sexuality.

A minor in Women’s Studies also provides students with a forum for exploring the realities of their own experiences and discussing those realities in a systematic, informed and respectful manner. Courses are designed to facilitate this exploration process in a supportive context and empower students to view others’ cultures and experiences in a new and positive light. These courses are specified in the Bulletin course description section as counting toward the Women’s Studies minor.
