2018-2019 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Minor 15 credits

The Women’s, Gender, and Sexualities Studies minor introduces an interdisciplinary, intersectional, and transnational understanding of gendered experiences. It examines how women’s, men’s, and trans experiences are locally and globally constituted at the intersection of race, class, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality, religion, (dis)ability, and other forms of differences. This interdisciplinary minor incorporates a diverse range of courses in the areas of sociology, history, literature, psychology, anthropology, and political science.

The specialization bridges the gap between theory and activism by connecting historical and contemporary feminist theories with local, regional, and transnational feminist activism. It trains students for advanced graduate studies as well as social-justice oriented non-profit, government, and international professions.
