A minor in Women’s Studies consists of eighteen hours in designated women’s studies courses (15 advanced hours + WOST 2350). At least twelve of the eighteen hours must be taken in residence. A maximum of six hours of approved transfer substitutes will be accepted toward the minor. No more than six semester hours in a student’s major may apply to the minor. A minimum 2.00 grade point average is required for all courses attempted in the minor.
The interdisciplinary nature of this minor requires that students not confine course work to any one department or college. A minimum of nine hours of approved course work (including WOST 2350) from the humanities, fine arts, and communication fields of study and a minimum of six hours of approved course work from the social sciences fields of study must be taken.
The following is a partial listing of regularly offered courses that count toward the minor. In addition, courses listed in each semester’s schedule under Women’s Studies are considered approved courses for the minor, even though those courses may not appear on the list below.
On occasion, courses are added to this approved list between editions of this catalog. For the most up-to-date list of approved courses for this minor, contact the Women’s, Gender and Sexual Studies Program.
