Using a variety of conceptual frameworks, experiences and disciplinary approaches, the women’s studies minor provides a focused study of women. Our program fosters an intellectual climate to examine cultural norms and engage in the enterprise of reframing our understanding of history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, art and other disciplines by taking into account the experiences of women. We also examine the gender roles of men.
This minor is useful for both male and female students who would like to inquire into the nature and role of gender in our individual and societal experiences. The implications of these concerns in education, business and the other professions are of primary focus based on our students’ needs and interests.
