Pre-2012 Minors

The minor allows students with an interest in Gender & Sexuality Studies to gain substantial exposure to the field while taking fewer courses than needed for the major. In addition, students often use the minor in Gender & Sexuality Studies to satisfy the “related courses” or “concentration” requirements of their WCAS, MEDILL or School of Communications major.

In 2012 Gender & Sexuality Studies introduced new minor requirements. Students entering Northwestern in 2012 or thereafter must follow these new minor requirements. Students who entered Northwestern before 2012 may choose to pursue either the old or the new minor requirements.

(To 2012 Catalog) * Students who entered Northwestern in Fall 2012 or later can only pursue the new minor in Gender & Sexuality Studies

2. Five additional courses, at least three at the 300-level, focusing on gender and sexuality. Three of these five must be offered through the Gender & Sexuality Studies Program. The others may be either offered through Gender & Sexuality Studies or cross-listed.

*At least 5 courses for the minor must not be double-counted toward a major. No courses may be double-counted toward another minor.
