Considering a Minor?
Stop by the department office in Wilson-Short Hall 10 to fill out a "Minor Interest" form.
Completing it does not obligate you to declare a minor in women's studies. The form simply indicates your interest so we may contact you with current information as it becomes available.
When you complete 60 credit hours, we will file a "Petition for Certifying a Minor" form with the Registrar's Office.
