Mission

The Women's Studies Minor explores the experiences of women in cultures around the world. This program is interdisciplinary and examines the social construction of gender and sexual differences with an emphasis on women’s experiences.

Women's Studies seeks to acknowledge and understand how gender relates to ethnicity, race, social class, religion, sexuality, nationality, globalization and other factors that shape every day life. Students in the program will acquire the knowledge and skills to understand the history and structures of gender inequalities and how to advocate for  women’s rights and freedoms.
