Women's Studies Minor

The Women’s Studies minor is grounded in MUW’s history as America’s first public college for women and its ongoing commitment to academic and leadership development for women. Using an interdisciplinary approach, students in the minor critically examine the social construction of gender and the gendered status of women in diverse cultural contexts and time periods. The minor emphasizes both scholarly exploration and the application of knowledge to practical women’s issues.  Any student graduating with a minor in Women’s Studies will be required to earn at least a C in all minor courses.
