Due to the transdisciplinary nature of the department, a minor in Gender Studies complements a wide variety of programs and degrees. From the humanities to the sciences, policy to the arts, media to education, a minor in Gender Studies can enhance your degree as you examine how gender and its intersections have an impact on your field.
My Gender Studies professors taught me how to be a global citizen and activist; how to recognize the pitfall of American exceptionalism; how to find the underlying shared humanity that transcends cultural, ideological, and religious differences; and how to see past the imaginary lines that create borders drawn on a piece of paper that value one people over another. Things that we desperately need now. Gender studies is the ultimate humanities field.Keely Green, 2012 graduate; B.A., History; Minor, Gender Studies
