University adds minor in women, gender, and sexuality studies
Students interested in the impact of gender and sexualities on the human experience are invited to learn more about the University’s new interdisciplinary minor in women, gender, and sexuality studies.
Coursework for the minor examines the intersection of complex relations among gender, sexualities, power, race, class, ethnicity, identity and other cultural forms of difference.
Students in the minor may choose to have service learning feature prominently in their course of study, allowing them to discover how issues of gender and sexualities apply to fields of study such as nursing, business, art, education, politics and social work.
The minor in women, gender, and sexuality studies includes two required courses: WGS100: Naked Truths: Introduction to Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies (3 credits) and WGS395: Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies Capstone (3 credits).
In addition to the required courses, students choose 12 credits of electives in at least two different disciplines. The list of approved electives includes courses in administration of justice, art, biology, English and communications, environmental studies, management, psychology, religious and theological studies, sociology and anthropology, and social work.
