Minor in Gender and Intersectionality

About the Program

A minor in Gender and Intersectionality encourages students to critically investigate gendered power relations in all fields of social life, including popular culture and the arts, through exciting course offerings.

By taking courses from a variety of disciplines, students examine the social construction of gender in various cultural and historical contexts to analyze how gender inequalities in a range of domains intersect with other structures of advantage and disadvantage, such as race, class, nation, and sexuality. These gender courses equip students with critical-thinking skills essential to effectively bring about positive changes in a world deeply impacted by gender injustice.
