Women's Studies Interdisciplinary Minor (SJC Long Island)

(18 credits)

Using a variety of conceptual frameworks, experiences and disciplinary approaches, the minor in Women’s Studies promotes a focused study of women. The goal is to foster an intellectual climate in which to examine cultural norms and engage in the enterprise of reframing our understanding of history, psychology, sociology, philosophy, art and other disciplines by taking into account the experiences of women. In doing so, we necessarily also examine the gender roles of men. This minor would be useful for students, both male and female, who would like to inquire into the nature and role of gender in our individual and societal experiences. The implications of these concerns in education, business and the other professions will be of primary focus based on our students’ needs and interests.
