Students can either major or minor in gender, sexuality, and women's studies (GSW), and often combine GSW with another major or minor.
For instance, a major in social work or psychology might choose to minor in GSW as they look forward to a career working in women's issues. Pre-law students take a major in GSW as they prepare to take up the cause of breaking down institutionalized gender discrimination.
In whatever way you see yourself changing the world, your work in GSW will provide you with the theoretical underpinnings and context to help you build a successful path.
