How to Minor

The Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies minor can complement any major, providing critical tools for understanding and analyzing gender and sexuality in every discipline. Recent FGSS minors have majored in Human Biology, Anthropology, CSRE, English, et al…

A student wishing to minor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies should apply to the minor via AXESS, preferably by winter quarter of the junior year. The student will then develop an individualized proposal describing a thematic focus and outlining a course of study, approved by a prospective adviser from the list of affiliated faculty. The proposal is then submitted to the Program Office (Bldg. 460, Room 216) for approval by the Director.

The minor in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies consists of at least six courses at the 100 level or above for a maximum of 36 units. None of the units for the minor may count towards the student’s major.
