Women's Studies Minor

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs

Also interdisciplinary, the women’s studies minor uses faculty expertise from many different departments.

Faculty strongly recommend a cooperative education internship. A women’s studies minor is appropriate for students in education, guidance and counseling, law enforcement, human services, business management, advertising, public relations, communication, liberal arts, and the behavioral and social sciences. Men are welcome and encouraged to study the scholarship that focuses on women. They may find from such study a conceptual framework that will enable them to better understand, appreciate, work, and live with women.

Total: 24

Additional Information:

In addition to the core courses, 6 semester hours of electives acceptable to or taught through women’s studies are required, bringing the total number of semester hour credits for a women’s studies minor to 24. These courses, some of which are interdisciplinary, are selected in consultation with the women’s studies faculty and are approved by the Institute. Core courses are supplemented each semester by topics and current issues courses. Appropriate electives are often listed in other departments and crosslisted with women’s studies. Students should check the Class Schedule located online on MSCD’s Web site ( each semester for appropriate crosslisted courses and other relevant offerings. A course can be used for only one of a major or a minor or General Studies. Students are urged to get advising early in their course of study and to plan their programs with care, as some courses are offered only once each year.
