Women and Gender Studies

The Women’s and Gender Studies Minor introduces students to the concept of gender as an organizing principle of cultural experience. Through interdisciplinary study, students will understand gender as a key factor that drives both continuity and change in our culture. Courses in this minor explore the implications of gender and gender roles in both Western and non-Western societies.

Study of the ways in which gender shapes human consciousness and determines the social, political, and cultural organization of society will stimulate both students’ intellectual growth and their personal awareness of how gender affects their world.
