Ph.D. Minor

A Ph.D. minor in Gender Studies complements a wide variety of programs and degrees, due to the transdisciplinary nature of the department. From the humanities to the sciences, policy to the arts, media to education, a Gender Studies minor can enhance your degree as you examine how gender and its intersections affect your field.

As Gender and Women's Studies programs are expanding around the world, adding a Gender Studies minor to your project opens up additional job opportunities to those looking to stay in academia.

A Ph.D. Minor in Gender Studies requires at least four 3-4 credit courses offered by the Department of Gender Studies. At least 1 of these courses must be chosen from the following: G600 Concepts of Gender; G603 Feminist Theories; and G702 Researching Gender Issues.

For official degree requirements, you should consult the Graduate Bulletin.
