Gender Studies Minor

The Gender Studies minor augments and enriches study in a traditional field. Students participating in this program are required to complete both a departmental major and the Gender Studies minor.

To enter the minor, students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better and formally register with the department undergraduate advisers in 1120 Rolfe Hall. They are encouraged to declare the minor as early as possible.

Required Lower-Division Course (5 units): Gender Studies 10. Students must also complete departmental lower-division requisites, as applicable, for upper-division gender studies courses.

Required Upper-Division Courses (24 units): (1) One core course from Gender Studies 102, 103, or 104, (2) 120SL or 187 or an equivalent senior research seminar approved in advance, and (3) four upper-division courses (minimum of 4 units each) from the approved gender studies course list. No more than 4 units of courses 195 through 199 may be applied.

A minimum of 20 units applied toward the minor requirements must be in addition to units applied toward major requirements or another minor.

Each minor course must be taken for a letter grade, and students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better in the minor. Courses in which students receive grades of C− or lower may not be applied toward the core requirements in the minor. Successful completion of the minor is indicated on the transcript and diploma.
