Minor in WGSS!

The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies (WGSS) Minor critically examines the social, historical, psychological, literary, artistic and philosophic dimensions of gender relations through an interdisciplinary combination of courses. This includes an examination of the ways that gender, race, ethnicity, social class, sexuality, nationality, able-bodied-ness, and other facets of embodiment intersect in the construction of gender identity and experience. The WGSS program hosts the annual Gender Matters symposium for the presentation of work by students from CSUB and other universities on topics related to the study of gender and sexuality. Students interested in completing a major in WGSS may do so through a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Interdisciplinary Studies with a specialization in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
