Understand the legacy of women throughout history
The Women’s Studies minor provides students with an avenue to explore contemporary and historical women’s issues as they relate to traditional academic disciplines and human life. The minor begins with Introduction to Women's Studies and culminates in Capstone Seminar in Women's Studies. Working closely with their academic advisors, students pursuing the women's studies minor choose four additional courses, from two categories. These elective offerings vary by term.
During the course of the Women's Studies minors, students understand women's contributions to society, culture, and history, study gender roles and differences, benefit from elective courses in a variety of different fields, and build a capstone project of your own design.
