About the Minor

Coordinator: Dr. Dina Pinsky, Associate Professor

A minor in Gender and Sexuality 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 how gender and sexuality affect our everyday lives, such as the intersection of race, class and gender.


The interdisciplinary goal is achieved by taking courses that offer knowledge about aspects of gender and sexuality from the perspectives of different disciplines.  Students are required to take SO 229: Introduction to Gender Studies in addition to four courses (16 credits) selected from a list of eligible courses that is shared every semester by the Coordinator. A sample of recent courses is listed below. Additional relevant courses may be counted toward the minor with the permission of the Coordinator.
