GSWS Minor

The Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies Minor is best suited to students who have already declared a primary field of study but desire an additional way of approaching issues in that field. The minor introduces students to the significant issues in Gender and Women’s Studies and allows students to pursue their intellectual questions through a variety of elective courses.

The minor includes three required three credit core courses:

  • An introductory interdisciplinary course
  • An introduction to feminism
  • A course in feminist theory

Flexibility of choice for the other 9 credits from courses in various academic departments permits a student either to get a broad perspective of women’s studies or to specialize in an area such as women in literature or women in society. Each student should consult with the Director of the Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies program to work out a suitable course of study to meet the minor’s requirements.

To add a minor, the process is the same as adding a major.
