This interdisciplinary minor complements many existing degree programs. It enables students to study the roles of women in society and their various contributions over time. By doing so, students broaden their cultural and intellectual perspectives in significant and meaningful ways and, in the process, give themselves an edge with employers. In particular, the minor benefits students studying for careers in politics, medicine, social services, education, law, and business.
This minor requires students to complete 15 hours in women’s studies classes.
