The feminist and gender studies curriculum consists of critical examination of theories about and attitudes toward women, gender, and sexuality both in Western culture and globally, with the goal of broadening our perspectives as well as of considering the conditions for the creation of a more equitable society. 5.5 units minimum or 6 units if the option of a minor paper is pursued.
Students seeking to minor in feminist and gender studies must complete FG110; 200; either 410 or, under special circumstances and with consent of their minor advisor, a minor paper (335 or 336) and a thematic concentration consisting of three courses. Only one unit of the minor may also be counted toward, or in the department of, the student’s major.
