The gender and sexuality studies minor provides you with a solid grounding in the interconnected, interdisciplinary fields of gender, sexuality, and queer studies, and engages these fields from a variety of perspectives – religious, economic, political, social, biological, psychological, historical, anthropological, artistic, and literary.
While integrating theoretical concepts and empirical knowledge, gender and sexuality minors learn to practice critical thinking about issues of gender and sexual identity and to develop strong research, communication, and writing skills.
Students must satisfactory complete six courses for the minor.
A maximum of one elective may be an independent study, tutorial or practicum. No more than two courses in the minor may be in the student's major field of study and a grade of "C-" or higher is required in all courses applied toward the minor.
At most two elective courses may be taken away from Davidson. No more than three courses for the minor may be from the same department (with the exception of courses with GSS designation).
Courses taken pass/fail at Davidson may not be counted toward the minor.
