WHY MINOR IN WOMEN STUDIES?
In a highly competitive, global world, students must have an understanding of multiple perspectives. Women Studies is a great complimentary minor for all students, women and men. The Women Studies Program offers an 18 credit interdisciplinary minor that draws courses from Women Studies, Anthropology, Business, Communication, English, History, Health Education, Physical Education, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. The Women Studies minor enhances intellectual growth, complements major degree programs, and provides valuable internship opportunities.
The Women Studies Program congratulates its Fall 2013 ISU graduates earning minors in Women Studies:
