UAB’s Women and Gender Studies Program, drawing from the College of Arts and Sciences’ accomplished faculty in the humanities and social sciences, offers an interdisciplinary minor to undergraduates. Women’s and Gender Studies provides a cross-cultural, feminist understanding of gender and sexuality from the home to the global arena, in addition to a critical investigation of the standard academic discourses.

As it is an interdisciplinary program, a Women and Gender Studies Minor can add a critical dimension to a variety of undergraduate majors. We also offer a variety of internships related to the minor. The requirements for the minor are listed here. Please contact the Director, Dr. Lisa Sharlach, for more information.
