Gender, Race, and Ethnic Studies Minor

Program Description

The Gender, Race, and Ethnic Studies minor offers students interdisciplinary knowledge of the roles race and ethnicity, as well as, gender and sexuality play in culture, society, and politics across historical periods and geographic areas using different academic disciplines.

To earn a minor in Gender, Race, and Ethnic Studies, students will complete at least 15 credit hours, including at least three courses at the 3000 level or higher. While there are no prerequisites for the minor, individual course prerequisites apply. Also, some of the courses may be taught as writing-intensive courses. Students must take at least one course from three different departments and may take no more than two courses from the same department or program. Students must achieve a combined GPA of 2.0 in all minor courses to be awarded a minor in Gender, Race, and Ethnic Studies.
