Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Minor

Also available via Ecampus.

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor provides a multidiscpilinary exploration of gender and sexuality as they intersect with race, ethnicity, class, culture, nation, and ability. The curriculum incorporates a social activism component, and students are encouraged to consider the ways knowledge and activist engagements help promote social justice in local and global communities.

Students are expected to take the bulk of their course work toward the minor from the core and elective courses offered by the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program.

A total of 27 credits is required for the minor, with at least 12 credits at the upper-division level.

All required course work must be taken on campus and no more than 3 credits of online elective course work can be used toward the on-campus minor.
