Women's Studies Minor (WST)

The interdisciplinary minor in Women’s Studies enhances students’ liberal arts educations by emphasizing the experiences and contributions of women from diverse historical and contemporary cultures. Students who graduate with a minor in Women’s Studies will:

  • use the critical methods and approaches associated with Women’s Studies in classes from a range of disciplines;
  • articulate an understanding of the diverse contributions, perspectives, and experiences of women across various cultures, past and present;
  • and conduct upper-level research in issues related to women and/or sex/gender.
