The Minor in Gender Studies is multidisciplinary and as such enriches the traditional liberal arts curriculum by adding new perspectives on gender and how it has affected and continues to affect the lives and accomplishments of individuals. The program will incorporate gender into other basic categories of analysis including the dynamics of social change, the creation and transmission of culture and the arts, the legacy and cultural construction of our physical and intellectual characteristics, and the origins and nature of current theories and social issues. It encourages our students to connect information from a broad disciplinary background that provides them with the academic foundation necessary to understand and evaluate critical issues of gender facing contemporary society.
