Women's and Gender Studies Minor

To graduate with a Women’s and Gender 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 and Gender Studies minor.  21 WG STDS credits are required.

Study AbroadRequired Courses:

1) WG STDS 201 Intro to Women’s and Gender Studies
2) WG STDS 435 Women’s and Gender Studies Senior Seminar

Electives:

For the remaining 15 credits hours required to complete the minor, students may choose any combination of courses with the Women’s and Gender Studies WMST prefix. Courses approved to “count toward” the minor, but not officially cross-listed may be included among these electives with a course modification form.  

Students who have completed a cross-listed course under its departmental number rather than its Women’s and Gender Studies number may include that course. Cross-listed courses used to satisfy the credit requirements of this minor may also count toward a student’s minor.  

Women’s and Gender Studies courses may also be used for both the minor and towards fulfilling any general education requirements.
