The minor in Women’s Studies requires a total of 18 credit hours which include two required courses: WS 1000 and WS 2000. In addition to these two courses, the minor requires four upper-division electives chosen from the list below as well as special topics courses. Please note that these courses are described and cross-listed in the departments that offer them.
Other courses may be used by students toward the minor using the Women’s Studies Option. A course may be counted toward the minor if the student pursues an additional project on a topic pertaining explicitly to women and their roles, treatment, and status in society. Any research should consider questions of method which impact the way data are measured, interpreted, collected, and presented with respect to women. This project must be coordinated through the course instructor, a faculty mentor/advisor serving on the Women’s Studies Committee and with the signed approval of the Chair of the Women’s Studies Committee. Furthermore, classes are continually in the process of being added to the list below.
