The Graduate Minor in Women's and Gender Studies provides graduate students the opportunity to integrate the study of women and gender issues into their chosen field of study. The nine graduate level credit hours required include the Feminist Theory course (offered in the fall), the Feminist Epistemologies course (spring semester), and a graduate level course that is cross-listed with Women's Studies.
All graduate students, regardless of whether they are earning a minor or not, are welcome to enroll in the required classes. If you would like to enroll in the Minor Program, fill out the Graduate Minor Application Form & stop by the Women's and Gender Studies Program Office.
