Gender and Women’s Studies Minor

Dr. Dina Pinsky, Assistant Professor

A minor in Gender and Women’s Studies offers an in-depth study of gender, sexuality, and women’s issues from the perspective of different disciplines. Informed by varied feminist paradigms, the minor provides the opportunity to analyze and integrate knowledge using gender as an analytic category. Along with core courses in the social sciences and humanities, students can concentrate on critical aspects of women’s lives, such as the intersection of race, class and gender.


Students are required to select five courses (20 credits) from those listed in conjunction with the Coordinator. Additional relevant courses may be counted toward the minor with the permission of the Coordinator. The interdisciplinary goal is achieved by taking courses that offer knowledge about aspects of gender and sexuality from the perspectives of different disciplines.
