Gender Studies Minor

The gender studies minor examines the ways in which gender shapes society. How is gender affected by culture? How does gender relate to nations, sexuality, religions, class, and race?

As scholarship has grown over the last 30 years, theoretical explorations of gender have developed into powerful tools that help us formulate solutions to inequalities in cultures around the world.

Our program offers an interdisciplinary, critical-thinking approach to issues, from the personal to the global.
