Gender and Diversity Studies Minor

The Gender and Diversity Studies Minor (GDSM) explores gender awareness and diverse identities from interdisciplinary perspectives. The approach will help to develop critical thinking in various fields, cultural intelligence, and gender sensitivity, all of which are essential components for diversity management. Integrating Liberal Arts and Business course offerings, the GDSM blends practical and theoretical approaches in its critical analyses of gender, race, class, and sexuality. Students are required to complete a total of 12 credits, or four courses, to fulfill the requirements of the minor.
