Women's Studies Minor (M)

In addition to fostering the intellectual growth of its students, the Women’s Studies program seeks to advance leadership skills and professional opportunities for women in order to create responsible participation in a complex society. The coursework for the Women’s Studies minor reflects the interdisciplinary emphasis by encouraging a synthesis of knowledge from several distinct academic fields. 

The minor consists of 21 credits.  WST 101 will function as the basic course and will be taken by all students in the minor.  Students will then choose from a list of approved courses.  The director of the Women's Studies minor will work closely with each student in order to design a list of classes that meets the objectives of the minor and retains its interdisciplinary framework.
