Women’s and Gender Studies Minor


In addition to majors, the department of history, philosophy, and religion offers minors in global studies, history, and religious studies.

A student must successfully complete, at Fontbonne, a minimum of 50 percent of the credit hours required for the minor.

Courses Required for the Minor


The minor program in women’s and gender studies allows students to explore the contributions of women in the culturally-specific, historical, and contemporary social mechanisms through which gender is constructed, limited, responded to and deployed. The minor in women’s and gender studies requires the completion of 21 credit hours of coursework.

In addition, the director of interdisciplinary initiatives may approve Special Topics or Dedicated Semester courses to count toward this minor program on a one-time basis. See the chair of the department of interdisciplinary studies for further information.
