The minor in Women’s and Gender Studies is housed in the Humanities, History and Social Sciences Department. This minor is designed to give students an opportunity to explore issues of gender and sexuality in an interdisciplinary yet cohesive way. A rich complement to any of the majors of the College, this minor requires 21 hours for completion. Students will be exposed to feminist theory and will engage in a stimulating debate on the role of gender and sexuality in society from a variety of perspectives.
