2023-2024 Catalog


The Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies (GWSS) minor is an interdisciplinary program that encourages the study of gender construction and identities, the lives of women, and the range of sexualities, in local and global contexts.

There is no monolithic approach to the study of gender, women, and sexuality, as demonstrated by the wide range of departments across campus that offer related courses. The study of these concepts involves multiple layers of complexity and various disciplinary paradigms. The GWSS minor offers students the opportunity to engage in dialogue with learners across the curriculum as they study the power of critically analyzing gender, women, and sexuality from a multitude of disciplinary perspectives and philosophical positions.
