Gender & Women's Studies Minor

The gender and women’s studies minor (GWSM) is open to all students from any major or school at the University. The minor helps students gain a greater understanding of issues surrounding identity and sexuality in their historical, ethical, theological, and socio-cultural context. The minor incorporates content reflecting both the study of women's experiences specifically and the intersection of gender and culture more generally and encompasses all areas of human inquiry: the liberal arts, the social and natural sciences, engineering, nursing, education, law, business, medicine, and ministry.
