Women's Studies (minor)
The minor in Women’s Studies focuses on gender as a primary category of human experience. The universality of this experience, combined with the uniqueness of its expression in every individual, makes gender an ideal site for the rigorous inquiry and respectful dialogue that characterize a well-rounded liberal arts education.
At CLU, Women’s studies is an interdisciplinary curriculum that examines the role of gender in history, the workplace and other social institutions. The program encompasses disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.
