The Women’s Studies Department offers three minors for undergraduates who are interested in feminist scholarship but whose primary area of study is in another discipline. Minors allow students to develop a thorough understanding of specific fields related to Women’s Studies, and equip them with analytical skills that will inform their concentration and future careers.

Students interested in learning more about any of the minors should attend an Information Session, held throughout the academic year in Lane Hall; students can also declare a minor at these sessions.  

A Note Regarding LSA Minor Policies

Students may use only one course to meet requirements for both a major and minor. Courses in the minor may, however, be used for LSA distribution requirements (SS, HU, etc.). Please see the LSA policies on academic minors for more information.
