Graduate Minors

Graduate Minor in Women’s and Gender Studies

In addition to the undergraduate minor in Women's Studies, Texas State University offers a nine- to fifteen-hour minor at the graduate level in Women's and Gender Studies. The core, like the undergraduate program, is a multi-disciplinary concentration on images and realities of women. The courses allow graduate students to explore the recent research in the discipline in progress around literature across numerous disciplines. The minor is a valuable specialty that will help students to prepare for their personal and professional lives. It is a flexible complement for most graduate disciplines.

In addition, issues related to sexual orientation, ethnic identity and physical ability/disability are analyzed.
