Women's and Gender Studies, Minor
Saint Louis University's minor in women's and gender studies can be relatively easy to combine with another major or additional minor.
Women's and gender studies elective courses are often cross-listed with other departments, enabling students to use one course to simultaneously fulfill requirements for both their women's and gender studies minor and their other major/minors.
To complete the minor, students take the introductory course options, take two courses from two of the four other distribution areas required for the major (Diversity and Identity; Praxis; Theory; Inquiry/Research Experience), and take three electives at the 2000-level or above from courses with either a WGST number, a WGST cross-listing, or a WGST attribute.
The minor requires a total of 18 credits. Courses may simultaneously count for multiple majors and minors, and for core requirements. No single course can count for both a required course and an elective for a WGS major/minor.
