A Women's and Gender Studies (WGST) minor provides students with "a REAL Education for the REAL World."

Our WGST courses provide students with a better understanding of the diversity of human thought, experience, and interaction which is easily transferred to the real world. An understanding of how gender affects both our perceptions and expectations of others makes students distinctive when they enter the job market or apply for graduate school. Employers and graduate schools are actively seeking candidates with an expertise in women and gender issues because they understand the positive value of diversity.
