Minor in Women's & Gender Studies

 

For full course descriptions, use the online Academic Calendar.

Women's & Gender Studies asks questions about power and privilege that focus not only on the experiences and perspectives of women but also on the construction and mobilization of racialized, heteronormative gender formations. Not exclusively about or for women, Women's & Gender Studies courses are explicitly interdisciplinary, intersectional, and transnational, reflecting the rich interdisciplinary frameworks of feminist, gender and queer theories.
