Women's Studies Minor

(15 credits) 

Coordinator: Jolene Sanders 

The women’s studies program at Hood examines the experiences and status of women cross- culturally and historically. Gender categories do not exist in isolation, but intersect with race, ethnicity, nationality, class, sexuality, age and other social categories to shape identities and institutions. The program provides an analytical framework for students to examine gender across disciplines and in their own lives.
