The minor in Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary field of inquiry that encourages students
to understand and articulate how gender makes a difference - in the lives and experiences of
women, as well as men; in the practices and institutions of human societies; and in the
cultural products of societies, such as art and literature. Emphasizing the importance of
historical and cross-cultural perspectives, students in the minor will critically examine the
intersections of gender, class, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, and ability to make
visible structures of power that otherwise remain hidden.
The Liberal Studies Core Curriculum is one reflection of Gannon University's commitment to
its Catholic identity. The Core's design offers students a defined, integrated, shared
experience as the foundation for their undergraduate program.
