Dr. Thompson's 2013 Honors Class

Nearly nine hundred undergraduate students take courses in women's studies each semester. Many students elect to pursue a minor in women's studies in addition to fulfilling the undergraduate core curriculum requirement in multicultural-women's studies.  

The women's studies minor enables students to integrate diverse perspectives and combine a traditional major with a multidisciplinary exploration of women and gender, as they intersect with class, "race," ethnicity, culture, region, religion, and sexuality.  The minor is based on an interdisciplinary approach with courses offered in a variety of disciplines. 

A total of eighteen semester hours are required for the minor, including:

  • WS 2013:  Gender and Social Change
  • WS 3023:  U. S. Women of Colors
  • WS 4493:  Feminist Theories and
  • Three other Women's Studies courses.

Students can also select from a wide variety of discipline-based courses including English, government, history, health studies, nursing, dance, education, biology, psychology, sociology, and business and economics.  Why minor in Women's Studies? [pdf]
