Women’s Studies Minor

12 Hours

50% of credits for CLA minors must come from Purdue University

The requirements for the minor include WGSS 28000, Introduction to Women’s Studies , and three additional courses. The introductory course provides an overview of this interdisciplinary area of study. One additional Women’s Studies WGSS course is required at the 40000 level. The remaining three courses are selected from a list of approved courses offered by departments and programs in the College of Liberal Arts. Some of these courses have departmental prerequisites. Although WGSS 28000  is not a prerequisite to any of them, it is recommended as the first course of the program.

Students must receive a grade of “C” or better in order for a course to be accepted towards the requirements of the Minor.
