Requirements for the Minor in Gender Studies

This interdisciplinary program is offered as a minor only; there is no Gender Studies major offered at this time.

Requirements include 18 credits of coursework. Please be advised that individual courses are not offered every year, but are offered in a rotation that will provide students the ability to complete 18 credits over the course of the four-year degree program.

Required Courses:

Feminist Philosophy, PHIL 385 (3 credits), or
Feminist Social Theory, SOC 406 (3 credits)
Note: Although only one of the two courses is required, both may be taken for credit toward the minor in Gender Studies; both are therefore listed below under Upper Division Elective Courses.
