The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program is an interdisciplinary minor that approaches the human experience by considering the impact of gender and sexualities. The minor (18 credits) examines the intersection of complex relations among gender, sexualities, power, race, class, ethnicity, identity, and other cultural forms of difference. This individually tailored program allows students to explore service-learning opportunities and to examine how issues of gender and sexualities apply to their fields of study, including nursing, business, art, education, politics, social work, etc. Within their practical fields of study, students discover the broader issues of social justice, the mission of the University, and the dignity of the individual.
