III. SUMMARY OF FIELDS OF STUDY

1. GOAL(S)

Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary academic field that helps us understand the status, experiences, and achievements of women. It explores how we create and perpetuate gendered social structures and how these structures affect complicated social issues. Recommended for all students interested in investigating their responsibilities as part of a gendered society and in enriching their personal and professional interactions through commitment to both gender equity and activism for social change.

2. THE MAJOR(S)

None

3. THE MINOR(S)

The program offers one minor(s): Women's Studies

IV. ADMISSION/GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS

To graduate with a Women's Studies minor, students must meet all requirements for the degree being sought, in addition to earning a minimum grade point average of 2.00 in all courses applied to their Women's Studies minor. Refer to the following for complete requirements.

V. REQUIRED CORE COURSES

See minor below.

VI. THE MAJOR(S) , WITH EMPHASES AND/OR OPTIONS

None

VII. MINOR(S)

Required Credits: 21 minimum

Required Courses:

Electives:

For the remaining 15 credit hours required to complete the minor, students may choose any combination of courses with the Women's Studies (98) prefix. Courses approved to "count toward" the minor, but not officially cross-listed with a 98 number, may be included among these electives with a course modification form. Students who completed a cross-listed course under its departmental number rather than its Women's Studies (98) number may include that course in their minor.

Comment:

Cross-listed courses used to satisfy the credit requirements of the minor may also count toward a student's major. Any Women's Studies course approved as a general education course may be used for both the minor and toward fulfilling the appropriate general education requirement. Careful selection of courses can enable students to add a Women's Studies specialization to their programs in ways that complement their majors particularly well.
