Women’s and Gender Studies

Girls in class
Type of Degree: Minor

Self-defining as a “woman” or a “man” affects nearly every aspect of an individual’s life. A minor in Women’s and Gender Studies will challenge you to examine critically the ordinarily unexamined gendered aspects of identity. You’ll learn how gender intersects with other aspects of identity, including race/ethnicity, sexuality, and class, and how gender operates within systems of power.

Combine with psychology or religion.
