Minor in Women's Studies
The minor in women's studies is intended to give students a broad, interdisciplinary understanding of the ways in which gender interacts with race, age, class, and sexual orientation to shape human consciousness and the social, political, and cultural organization of society. In addition, the minor is intended to enrich the educational experience of students. It may also provide both men and women with tools for understanding and coping with the larger societal systems in which they must operate as both students and professionals. Because business and industry are increasingly sensitive to issues such as sex discrimination, sexual harassment, equal pay for comparable work, parental leave, and day care, students with a minor in women's studies will have a definite edge over other applicants for managerial and policy-making positions.
