Gender, race, class, parenthood, culture and inequality affect lives across the globe.

With a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies, you will have the opportunity to complement your major by increasing your understanding of gender issues across cultures.

You’ll take classes like Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies, Community Service in Women’s and Gender Studies and Feminist Theories and Practice. Then, you’ll explore topics across disciplines such as families and intimate relationships, LGBT literature and culture, gender communication, women in the bible, the history of sexuality and more. 

Through your studies, you will learn to understand the concept of gender and its impact on people's lives. You will graduate with a multi-faceted understanding of gender issues — so you can create a more just world.
