The minor allows students with an interest in Gender & Sexuality Studies to gain substantial exposure to the field while taking fewer courses than needed for the major. In addition, students often use the minor in Gender & Sexuality Studies to satisfy the “related courses” or “concentration” requirements of their WCAS, MEDILL or School of Communications major.
