Gender and Women's Studies

The multi-disciplinary focus of GWS helps make students distinctive when they are entering the job market or applying for graduate school. Some specific careers are particularly suited to the job candidate who has a GWS minor: government agencies, social work, counseling centers, women’s shelters, etc. Beyond those careers that focus on women’s issues, businesses of all sorts are interested in hiring employees who work well in a diverse society. More and more women and people of color are in the workplace, many in supervisory positions; students with a minor in GWS are better prepared to work in a diverse workplace. People with an understanding of gender relations and gender issues have skills that make them strong and effective leaders. Further, employees who understand the positive value of diversity are essential to businesses that market products or provide services to a diverse clientele.
