Women, Gender, and Sexuality Minor Requirements

Students can receive a minor in women, gender, and sexuality by completing six one-semester courses. The following courses are examples of the WGS core curriculum (363 prefix): 

  • Introduction to the Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality
  • Feminist and Queer Theory
  • Gender and Sexuality Beyond the Global West
  • Health, Medicine, Gender, and Sexuality
  • Internship/Practicum (offered in collaboration with the JHU Center for Social Concern, the internship-practicum combines academic work with volunteer experience)

Students are asked to complete at least two courses from the core WGS curriculum and may choose among the courses cross-listed with other departments for the remaining four. At least four 300- or 400-level courses are required for the minor; no more than two courses can be at the 100- or 200-level. Students must earn a C- or better in all minor requirements and courses may not be taken satisfactory/unsatisfactory.
