Awareness of gender issues is crucial for many occupations and careers (such as law, management, medicine, etc.). It is also crucial as Christians actively work toward reconciliation between genders. A gender studies minor will prepare you to deal with the complexities of gender concerns in the contemporary world.
The gender studies minor is a flexible interdisciplinary program that consists of five courses taken from at least four different departments, plus a capstone course. Courses can be taken in areas such as communications, literature, political science, sociology, philosophy and religion.
