The gender studies program is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing upon the considerable expertise of faculty in several colleges across the University.
The minor (18 credits) consists of an introductory gender studies course, two electives in the social sciences, two electives in the humanities, and one unrestricted elective.
The list of elective courses ensures both breadth and depth. Students may choose from courses in women's and gender studies, masculinity, and sexuality, most of which are
cross-listed with other programs. Such breadth reflects the strength and flexibility of an interdisciplinary program. Appropriate depth is ensured in that minors are required to take at least 9 credits at the 300 level or above.
