Women's and Gender Studies Minor

The College of Letters and Science, in conjunction with all other colleges at MSU, offers an interdisciplinary minor in Women's and Gender Studies. Students in the minor systematically study basic feminist theories and methodologies, as well as the experiences and contributions of women in a variety of cultures over time.

Students in the minor will examine issues and theories of gender inequity and gender identity, and will engage in feminist analysis within their disciplines. Students find the minor a stimulating challenge to traditional assumptions in their academic programs. Because of its interdisciplinary nature, the minor is individually shaped in consultation with a Women's and Gender Studies advisor. Students who declare a minor in Women's and Gender Studies must complete 21 semester credits as outlined below.
