Gender and Sexuality Studies Minor

The Gender and Sexuality Studies minor challenges students to think critically and communicate effectively about constructions of gender and sexuality and their intersections with categories such as race, class, ethnicity, religion, nationality, and age, among others. This interdisciplinary program will equip students with the knowledge and abilities to recognize gender- and sexuality-based inequalities and work toward positive change.

A list of courses used in this minor must be developed in consultation with the director of the minor program (gender@nmu.edu). When approved, a copy of the list will be filed in the Registrar’s Office. Students are encouraged to take GN 100 as early as possible.
