The interdisciplinary Women’s and Gender Studies Minor is designed for students who wish to study how gender, as it intersects with other identities, influences everyday life; special consideration is given to the study of women’s perspectives.

Women's and gender studies puts women at the center of study—their cultures, contributions, and perspectives. Women's and gender studies is defined by what is taught, how questions are asked and explored, and often, how the subject is taught. A common misconception is that women's and gender studies is just for women—it is not. It is a program of study for and about all genders.
