Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies Minor

The minor in Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies, housed in the Humanities, History and Social Sciences Department is designed to give students an opportunity to explore issues of gender and sexuality in an interdisciplinary and cohesive way. The minor is a rich complement to any of the majors offered at the College because it gives students a strong background in perceiving the structural issues of gender and sexuality in articulation with race, ethnicity, (dis)ability and other socially meaningful categories. In this way, the minor enhances the College’s commitment to issues of diversity, equity and inclusion. Students in the minor are engaged in stimulating debates on the role of gender and sexuality in varied societies from a variety of perspectives as a way to help them discover their own voices within these debates. The Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies minor assists students in preparing to navigate an increasingly diverse and complex global society.
