Gender Studies (Minor)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The minor in gender studies is designed to enable students to develop a critical awareness of socially formed gender patterns.

From birth, females and males internalize assumptions about gender roles. This often results in both sexes consciously or unconsciously limiting their views of themselves and each other. The minor in gender studies consists of an interdisciplinary investigation of gender-related issues and research. Learning to apply standards of critical thought to the inevitable emotional content of gender studies may enable men and women to live and work together more successfully with greater mutual respect and understanding.

For more information about the gender studies minor, please contact the gender studies advisor.
