Women's and Gender Studies

Students in this interdisciplinary minor program study the history, experiences, and contributions of women to feminist theoretical perspectives, and the critical role of gender in human life. The Women’s and Gender Studies minor is both interdisciplinary and integrative, engaging you through coursework, community-based learning, and campus-wide programming. Courses in the program are frequently co-taught so that you experience the material through the methodological and intellectual lenses of more than one faculty area of expertise.  

You will be encouraged to participate in internships, special projects, and individualized research. WGS students often take advantage of opportunities to attend and participate in regional, national, and even international scholarly conferences.
