Minor in Gender Studies

The Gender Studies page has moved! Please visit https://ualr.edu/minors/gnst/.

An interdisciplinary minor in Gender Studies requires 18 hours, including a six-hour core composed of GNST 2300, Introduction to Gender Studies, and GNST 4300, Senior Seminar. The minor 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.
