Minor in WGS

The Women's and Gender Studies minor is 18 credit hours and is available to all undergraduate students.


Students pursuing a minor in Women's and Gender Studies (WGS) will work with their major adviser and the director to select courses that meet the program requirements. In addition to WGST 103 (Introduction to WGS) and WGST 498 (Capstone), which are required for all WGS minors, students will select four (4) additional courses from the electives list. Other appropriate courses may be added to the minor at the discretion of the WGS program director. A grade of C or better is required in each course to be applied toward the minor.
