The interdisciplinary minor in Gender Studies is designed to help students understand and define the changing roles of women and men brought about by social, economic, political, legal, and other changes in society and the interrelationships among gender, class, and race. The program is particularly recommended to students who plan to pursue graduate studies in the social sciences, humanities, law, business, or social services, and those whose career choices involve working with women, children, the elderly, and socially disadvantaged populations.
The Gender Studies minor requires 18 hours, including GNST 2300, Introduction to Gender Studies. For more about gender studies courses, click here.
