The women's studies minor is interdisciplinary and is designed to complement many academic majors. Administration of this program and advisement for its students is conducted by the Women's Studies Committee, a subcommittee of the Center for Gender and Intercultural Studies. Students completing the minor will be exposed to scholarship focusing on women's role and status in society in both historical and contemporary contexts. The minor helps students prepare for numerous careers that are enhanced by an understanding of gender roles and relations between men and women in society.
