Women's and Gender Studies Minor

 

  • Do you like to think outside the box?
  • Do you care about equality, diversity, and social justice in the world today?
  • Do you want to stand out from the pack of job and graduate school applicants? 

If you answer YES to any of these questions, the Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) minor may be for you! Our graduates have successful careers in law, business and academia, among others. If you plan to work with people of any gender and/or sexual identities, explore WGS!

The Women’s and Gender Studies program at the University of San Diego teaches students to understand the history, development and consequences of culturally acquired gender and sexual identities in the context of the intersectionalities of these identities with others, including race, ethnicity, religion, socio-economic status, ability and age for the purpose of advocating greater equality, diversity and inclusion of all persons at local, national and/or global levels.
