Women's Studies (Minor)


Beautifully diverse group of students pose on Trinity's campus. Our program strives for a broad and complex understanding of the female experience in a global context. Encountering cross-cultural and multi-racial perspectives, our students explore women’s lives, labor, and arts; they examine the politics of gender; and they study the history of gender roles as well as representations of those roles in different media. Focusing on the interaction of class, race, gender, and sexuality, we help our minors analyze the relations of power in various cultures, and we provide our students with a basic structure of ideas, a framework for analyzing the fundamental shift in understanding arising from a systematic retrieval of history and from women’s changing awareness.

Our curriculum offers students the chance to develop skills such as critical thinking, writing, research, and social activism. Students will find these skills are necessary for a wide range of academic disciplines. Our minor prepares students for careers in many fields, including research, policy, government and nonprofit agencies, publishing, international affairs, education and advocacy.

Faculty representing diverse disciplines in the College of Arts and Sciences collaborate with and contribute to the Women’s Studies program.
