Women's & Gender Studies Undergraduate Minor
Overview - What is Women's & Gender Studies?
The Women's and Gender Studies program at Texas Tech University is an interdisciplinary academic program supporting transformational undergraduate- and graduate-level scholarship and teaching. WGS fosters creative, collaborative, and sustaining social justice approaches and feminist scholarship that advance understanding, equity, and compassion.
Additionally, some women's studies courses fulfill the Social and Behavioral Sciences, Individual or Group Behavioral Sciences, and the Core Language, Philosophy & Culture requirements.
