Choosing a Minor is not Necessarily a Minor Matter
The right minor can not only illuminate your major; it can illuminate your resumes and applications, cueing others in to the distinct individual you are,
your commitments and values, the direction(s) of your life.
Any minor will provide you an area of specialization and concentration. A Women’s Studies Minor, as an interdisciplinary pursuit,
offers you a chance not only to explore subjects across a range of disciplines—relevant, provocative, probing ideas and issues—
but also to delve into theories, perspectives and special topics within the program.
A Women’s Studies Minor will complement virtually any major field of study.
And we allow our students to pursue their own interests within the structure of our Minor Program.
The College of Arts and Sciences awards certificates of achievement to students who successfully complete interdisciplinary minors.
