The Women's Studies minor offers flexible and diverse coursework across a variety of disciplines. Distinct in its commitments—born of women’s struggles, movements, lives and work—it invites students to revise perspectives, make fresh inquiries, broaden and deepen understandings by means of a simple but radical shift: the re-rendering of the female half of the human race not as "the second sex," but as primary, fundamental, essential and real. The program emphases are  inclusiveness, criticality, academic freedom and responsibility.
