Minor in Gender and Women's Studies

The Gender and Women’s Studies Minor offers an interdisciplinary program of study that examines the social, cultural and biological construction of gender and sexuality. The minor is intended to provide students with a critical understanding of how gender organizes our world and shapes our thinking about what it means to be male and female. Gender and Women’s Studies challenges students not just to acquire new knowledge, but to incorporate that knowledge into their lives and to use that knowledge to bring about meaningful social change. HPU’s multicultural setting and diverse student body offer a unique opportunity to study gender from a truly global and international perspective.
