A Women’s and Gender Studies (WMST) minor complements majors in a variety of disciplines. It provides a theoretical, interdisciplinary approach to the critical examination of women’s roles, contributions, history and experiences and of gender structures in societies and cultures in the U.S. and the world.

The minor may also be taken in partial fulfillment of requirements for the Bachelor of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies.
