Women's and Gender Studies Minor

Women's and Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary field of academic study that draws on feminist ideas and scholarship to develop historical, theoretical, and cross-cultural frameworks for the comparative study of women and gender. Women's Studies examines the category of gender and the subject of women (and men) in terms of their different and changing roles and experiences throughout history and across the world.

Since its inception, Women's and Gender Studies has expanded to include gender studies, men's studies, gay/lesbian studies, third world feminisms, and a greater focus on the intersection of gender, race, class, ethnicity, nationality, and sexuality among other identities, subject positions, and systems of oppression.
