Women’s & Gender Studies: A Minor that makes a Major difference
MetadataShow full item record
What is WGS? A program in the College of Arts & Sciences that combines two interdisciplinary fields – Women’s Studies and Gender Studies – to offer an 18-credit hour minor to undergraduate students. Embracing its foundations in Women’s Studies (WS), WGS highlights the experiences and contributions of women, both historically and in contemporary societies around the globe. As Gender Studies (GS), the program explores social constructions and experiences of gender (masculinity and femininity) and diverse sexual orientations. By virtue of their combination (WS + GS) in Creighton’s program (= WGS), students discover new, more inclusive ways of thinking and relating in contemporary society.
