Gender Studies

Return to: Departments and Programs  

Associate Professor Miceli, Director (Sociology)

The gender studies minor 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 course in gender studies, two electives in the social sciences, two electives in the humanities, and one unrestricted elective course.

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 three such credits at the 300 level or above.
