At the undergraduate level, we offer a minor in Women’s and Gender Studies and an Interdisciplinary Studies major with a concentration in Women's and Gender Studies. The goal of the programs is to develop students’ understanding of the ways gender has shaped lived experience in the past, present, and around the world. As such, it complements a wide variety of majors. The knowledge and skills that Women’s and Gender Studies minors develop help them find employment in business, healthcare, education, government, and the non-profit sector.
Women’s and Gender Studies minors can take courses in a wide variety of fields (e.g., History, Sociology, English, Psychology, Public Health, Anthropology). With proper planning the minor can be integrated with most majors. The Women’s and Gender Studies program will allow students to double-count up to 9 hours of classes (i.e., classes that count for the WGST minor and a student’s major). Students should check with their major advisor to see how many courses their major will allow them to double-count.
