Women and Gender Studies Minor

A minor in Women’s Studies requires 18 credit hours. Six of those hours consist of two interdisciplinary core courses: Women’s Studies 2010 and Women’s Studies 2020. The remaining courses should be selected from designated Women’s Studies courses available in the various departments (see list, below). Twelve credit hours must be at the 3000 or 4000 level. Six hours toward the minor may be upper level independent study; pursuit of a special topic through independent study is a worthwhile option. Women’s Studies includes courses regularly offered by departments (see list, below), as well as special topics courses offered on an occasional basis (contact the Women’s Studies office, 402-554-3834, for information). All courses presented for Women’s Studies credit must be taught by Women’s Studies faculty. The student must earn a minimum grade of “C” (2.0) in courses presented for credit in the program.
