Women's and Gender Studies
Liberal Arts Core courses included in minor program requirements are distinguished by italics.
Women's and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary and multicultural program that engages in research and exploration concerning all areas of women=s and men=s experiences. Its unique perspective strengthens the abilities of students within any major to critically analyze theory and research emphasizing the importance of gender while including other essential categories of analysis such as race, class, sexuality, ethnicity, and nationality. This program is offered under the jurisdiction and general supervision of the Deans of the Colleges of Social and Behavioral Sciences and Humanities and Fine Arts*.
