The women’s studies minor offers an opportunity to explore, within a rigorous academic context, important contemporary issues concerning women’s perspectives and roles. Its interdisciplinary curriculum highlights the complex ways in which our notions of gender affect many dimensions of experience, including social roles, identity, sexuality, family life, moral choices, social justice, history, literature, and philosophy. The minor requires a selection of seven different courses in at least three different disciplines. The student chooses specific courses in consultation with an adviser.
