Program Description:

At Wilkes, Women's Studies is offered as an interdisciplinary minor for which 18 credit hours are required.  Students can earn the minor by taking Women's Studies 101 (WS 101) and fifteen additional hours, including a seminar or independent study, in a variety of courses designated as eligible for the Women's Studies minor.  Courses that may count toward the minor are regularly offered in a range of disciplines across the university campus. 

Whatever your major, choosing a minor in Women's Studies will add an important dimension to your education by giving you a perspective on how the study of women's contributions are changing the way we think about various disciplines.  Your minor in Women's Studies will not only provide a personally satisfying educational experience, but it will also enhance your professional preparation for many careers.
