Women’s & Gender Studies Minor

Sociology + History + English and more

Study Across Disciplines

When you pursue a women’s and gender studies minor, you examine ideas, approaches, and activism related to gendered identities in conjunction with sexual orientation, race, class, culture, and public policy across many disciplines. This minor encompasses feminist studies, masculinity studies, and sexuality studies.

After establishing a foundational understanding of themes related to gendered identities, you choose courses from fields as diverse as English, communication, history, sociology, anthropology, political science, French and others.

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 several interdisciplinary studies minors 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.
