Sociology + History + English and more
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.

At Truman, we know that all fields of study are connected in complicated and fascinating ways.
