Women’s Studies

15-hour Minor

Women’s studies at Anderson University focuses on the historical, cultural, sociological, political, and economic roles of women, both in the United States and around the world. Drawing from history, art, sociology, and literature, students learn the impact gender has on women as individuals and within the context of family, faith, community, and citizenship.

Studying about women provides students a chance to see our world from multiple perspectives and encourages active engagement in social justice and issues of equality across the globe. Requiring only 15 credit hours, the women’s studies minor complements any major offered at Anderson University.
