UW Tacoma’s Minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies is dedicated to the study of gender and sexuality as they intersect with one another, and with race, class, nation, dis/ability, and other categories of power and difference in our world. By bringing together faculty and courses from across the University, the program provides students with an interdisciplinary investigation of the significance of gender and sexuality in society, history, politics, culture, media, law, and everyday life. At the core of this interdisciplinary, intersectional program is the study of theories and practices of social justice and transformation.
A minor in Gender and Sexuality Studies offers students the opportunity to develop their critical thinking, analytic writing, and qualitative research skills. It is an excellent foundation for undergraduates considering careers in education, law and policy, social and health services, community organizing, public engagement, or the arts.
