Women’s and gender studies explores the intersections of gender, race, and other categories of difference via a feminist lens. WGS focuses on the construction and representation of identities, behaviors, and social relations within culturally specific institutions and within a global context. WGS courses stress the understanding of self and others and the importance of social justice, activism, and community engagement. This minor requires a total of 18 credit hours, at least 12 of which must be 300-level or above. Students must achieve a C or better in all courses. This minor may be completed online as well as in the traditional classroom setting. Required courses include WGS 150 , WGS 310 , and the capstone experience, WGS 594 . Students may complete the remaining credit hours with WGS 300-level or above courses or director-approved courses from other disciplines.
