Women and Gender Studies is based on the premise that an educated person, regardless of discipline, needs to understand the contemporary world at both personal and societal levels. The minor in Women and Gender Studies provides an integral understanding of forces at work in a multicultural, pluralistic society, especially as they relate to the variety of issues related to gender, including women’s studies, masculinity studies, LGBT issues, feminist theory and queer theory. A minor in Women and Gender Studies enhances the academic analysis of other university disciplines and lends itself to various careers such as counseling, business, personnel management, social work, advertising, law, politics and education.
