Gender Studies

At UA Little Rock we offer a minor in Gender Studies, or Gender Studies courses can be a part of a degree plan for students seeking an Interdisciplinary Studies BA. Gender Studies courses are also great choices for general electives outside of your major and/or minor.

The interdisciplinary minor in Gender Studies is designed to help students understand gender roles and how they are impacted by the challenges and opportunities brought about by social, economic, political, legal, and other changes in society.  Our courses also explore the interrelationships among gender, class, and race.  The program is particularly recommended to students who plan to pursue career choices involving working with women, children, the elderly, LGBTQ, and socially disadvantaged populations.  Gender Studies courses are good foundations for graduate studies in the social sciences, humanities, law, business, or social services.

To complete the Gender Studies minor, or a concentration in Gender Studies as part of an Interdisciplinary degree, first complete GNST2300, Introduction to Gender Studies, then complete five (15 hours) of approved upper level electives, one of which must be designated as the Gender Studies capstone course.  Ideally, you should take the Gender Studies capstone during the final semester before your graduation.  You should touch base with the Gender Studies coordinator each semester during the advising period to make sure you are on track with the program.

Please contact the Gender Studies coordinator, Dr. Katrina Yeaw (keyeaw@ualr.edu), for more information.
