Women's and Gender Studies

The WGS minor provides an opportunity to explore multiple perspectives on historical and contemporary issues concerning women, gender, and sexuality. Courses use feminist frameworks to analyze gender and sexuality in relation to race, ethnicity, class, nationality, ability, and other factors that shape experiences, identities, and cultures. Courses also examine social institutions and networks of power while considering avenues of resistance, justice, and transformation.

The WGS minor complements a variety of majors and provides a valuable foundation for pursuing work in education, journalism, business, public affairs, the arts, the humanities, and the social sciences.
