The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Minor

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Minor enhances any major and adds a valuable aspect to one's training for the professional world. Our graduates go on to careers in both traditional and non-traditional career fields. Recent graduates have gone on to law school, graduate school in many fields, public service and private sector careers, medicine, business, political leadership positions, community organizing, and teaching in both K-12 and higher education.


The minor includes five core courses (including WGSS 211 and 411) and additional electives for a total of 30 credits. Courses not listed as Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies courses may be substituted at the discretion of the Director, if the courses focus primarily on women and/or women's experiences. Students are expected to earn at least a C+ in courses counting toward the minor. Close advisement is recommended, as new courses may apply to this minor.
