Women's and Gender Studies, Minor
Saint Louis University's women's and gender studies program makes it relatively easy for students to combine the minor with an outside major or additional minor.
The minor requires 18 women's and gender studies (WGS) credits.
Students must take WGST 1900: Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, one course from a list of five required electives, and four additional electives to complete the 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 WGS minor and their other major/minors.
Courses may simultaneously count for multiple majors and minors, and for core requirements.
