Minor in Women’s Studies

The Women’s Studies minor is designed to examine the status and experiences of women from a multidisciplinary perspective.

Courses taught within the minor typically involve the students through innovative, experiential classroom exercises and written assignments. Courses in Women’s Studies address social equity issues and encourage students to perceive themselves as capable of transforming society.
