Description

The Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor is an interdisciplinary program interlinking the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences and the arts. It is designed to complement many academic majors. Students completing the minor are able to examine interlocking systems of difference based on gender, sexuality, race, nation, class, ethnicity and ability, and to develop practical and theoretical skills for understanding and engaging the historical, social, cultural, economic and political contexts shaping our world.

Our vision is to advance the field through interdisciplinary research and innovative pedagogies, inspiring a new generation of gender and sexuality scholars and feminist leaders committed to social justice.

Administration of this program and advisement for its students are conducted by the program coordinator and the Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Committee, a subcommittee of the Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies.
