Learn to “talk” gender and sexuality in a world that’s increasingly conscious of these topics and increasingly divided over what they mean. We see you becoming aware of the way gender and sexuality shape our social lives and day-to-day interpersonal relationships. 

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor centers women’s experiences but also focuses on the concepts of gender and sexuality. As a WGSS minor, you’ll take courses from across the curriculum, reflecting the broad applicability of the minor to any field.
