The Women’s Studies minor at Flagler College is an interdisciplinary program that investigates how our lives are affected by gender, race, class, age, sexuality, religion, gender identity, and nationality.
Choosing from a variety of courses spanning departments, disciplines, and ideologies, students will learn the importance of understanding gender and sexuality as elements of wider social and political structures of power, knowledge, experience, culture, intimacy, and labor.
The introductory core course (WMS 101) encourages students to develop critical thinking skills and an appreciation for the range of theoretical frameworks and methodologies present in contemporary feminist scholarship.
Upper-level courses draw on the humanities, arts, social sciences, and natural sciences to explore the broad range of intellectual questions concerning the construction of women, gender, and sexuality in different social, cultural, political, economic, aesthetic, and historical contexts by combining methods and insights of traditional academic disciplines with innovations in interdisciplinary feminist scholarship.
The Women’s Studies minor requires a minimum of 18 hours.
