Women’s & Gender Studies Minor
As a Women's and Gender Studies (WGST) minor, you'll examine ideas, approaches, and activism related to gendered identities, in conjunction with sexual orientation, race, class, culture, and public policy across many disciplines. The WSGT minor encompasses feminist studies, masculinity studies, and sexuality studies.
A Truly Interdisciplinary Approach
After establishing a foundational understanding of themes related to gendered identities, you'll choose courses from fields as diverse as english, communication, history, sociology, anthropology, political science, French and others.

We Help You Succeed
At Truman, you benefit from the small classes and personal attention only available at a small undergraduate institution. You'll enjoy research opportunities that are more difficult to come by at a larger institution. Your classes are taught by professors - not graduate students - and our 16:1 faculty-to-student ratio insures you'll receive the personal attention you need when you need it.
Discover New Connections
At Truman, we know that all fields of study are connected in complicated and fascinating ways. Women and Gender Studies is one of fifteen interdisciplinary studies programs available for you to explore the new possibilities that open up when two or more fields overlap. Our interdisciplinary studies major even allows you to custom-design your own field of study.
