Women's Studies Minor
A minor in Women’s Studies is a perfect complement to a variety of majors! For example, if you’re a Nursing major and interested in working at an OB/GYN clinic, a Women’s Studies minor would help you prepare for your career working with women on women’s issues! Doing a degree in Political Science because you want to be a lawyer for victims of domestic violence? The minor in Women’s Studies can help you learn about interpersonal violence and gender. The Women’s Studies minor can help customize your undergraduate experience, preparing you for a career working on issues of diversity and social/political difference.
SEXUALITY STUDIES MINOR
Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that critically explores sexuality as a culturally and historically specific construct, a form of human expression, and a social identity that impacts our understandings of citizenship, politics, and humanity. Learn how sex and sexuality function in your own lives and in diverse populations. Courses in the minor cover topics as diverse as sexual identity, relationships, representations of sexuality, sexual well being and behavior. The minor emphasizes a cross-cultural and intersectional understanding of sexuality with a particular emphasis on gender, race, class, age, and disability. You will also become familiar with the ways in which sex and sexuality are addressed in various disciplines and in social justice movements for sexual minorities.
Declaring the Minor
Students should declare the minor in their College office. So, if you’re pursing a degree in Early Childhood Education, you would declare the minor in the College of Education and Human Development. If you’re doing a major in Business, you would declare the minor in the Schmidthorst College of Business. If you have questions or need help figuring out how to declare the minor, please contact the Director of Undergraduate Studies for the School of Cultural and Critical Studies
