Women, gender, sexuality studies (WGSS) is an interdisciplinary field that views and analyzes intellectual problems and issues of current concern through the perspectives of gender, class, race, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, and ability. Students think about challenges faced by marginalized (or not) individuals in both domestic and foreign spaces, and work to conceptualize solutions that can be applied in communities around the world. 

No matter your primary major, a WGSS minor will broaden your perspectives and change the way you see the world and your education. The skills you develop in critical thinking, communication, research, and analysis will enhance your career prospects no matter your field.

The minor requirements include WGSS 201 (Gender and Difference Critical Analyses), at least one additional WGSS class of at least 3 credits, 200 level or above, and 18 total credits in women, gender, sexuality studies. The elective credits can be earned in WGSS courses, related courses in other programs or other colleges in the Five College Consortium, or independent study, field work, and practicum credits.
