• Gender Studies (Minor)

  • Overview

    The Gender Studies minor is offered through Eugene Lang College of Liberal Arts.

    In this interdisciplinary program, students look at the culturally constructed idea of sex difference in different contexts and the way gender and sexuality are renegotiated over time. Students explore the history of feminist thought and action; men's studies; gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender studies; and queer theory. Learn more about the Gender Studies program.

    Curriculum

    Only specific courses satisfy requirements of the minor, including electives. See the fall 2019 Gender Studies courses and consult with the program director when selecting them. Credit for internships requires approval of the Gender Studies director.
