Gender Studies - MINOR

A gender studies minor offers JWU students the opportunity to learn about and understand the complex relationships between gender, human behavior and the world in which we live. Gender has been defined differently in different times and places. It is an individual trait but also a component of institutions and nations. The broad and interdisciplinary study of gender adds deeper understanding to any student’s program.
