The Gender and Sexuality Studies minor seeks to provide students with an understanding of gender's centrality to culture using interdisciplinary approaches. Gender and sexuality studies examines gender across cultures and historical periods while inquiring into the ways these concepts are represented in various forms, including popular culture, the media, literature and the arts.

A minor in gender and sexuality studies can serve as a useful basis for students in criminal justice, social sciences, English, business and public administration, social work and interdisciplinary studies.
