The women, gender and sexuality studies minor provides you with a foundation in the study of gender and sexuality, with a focus on topics related to women and the family worldwide and historically. Learn to think critically and creatively about questions of difference.
You will explore how gender (the social and cultural construction of sexual difference) intersects with other sources of identity and systems of power, such as race, ethnicity, class, sexuality, ability, religion and region. Take courses from faculty in numerous disciplines that investigate these issues in relation to family and community, work, law, politics, art and literature.
The women, gender and sexuality studies minor may accompany many undergraduate majors at the University of South Dakota, including all majors in the College of Arts & Sciences. Our program adheres to and supports USD’s inclusive excellence mission, goals and values.
