The women’s studies minor will enhance Converse students’ ability to understand themselves and their place in the global community by encouraging them to analyze the assumptions that are an essential part of language and cultural symbols. This program will foster awareness of women’s roles and the image of women in various cultures.

The minor consists of 21 credit hours of coursework. WST 200 and six elective courses are required. One elective course may be a cognate course.

Courses in art, English, French, Spanish, history, philosophy, politics and religion that are designated as women’s studies will be accepted for GEP humanities credit.
