Women's Studies Minor
Women's Studies is a rapidly growing academic field dedicated to the study of women and their changing position in society. Its importance lies both in its interdisciplinary approach to the study of women and in the timely opportunity it offers for the study of issues long neglected by traditional academic scholarship.
Minoring in Women's Studies can potentially complement any major at Indiana University Kokomo. The minor helps students understand the position of women in society, the changes that come about through efforts to eradicate discriminatory social practices, and the transformation still needed to achieve a just and caring society. Such knowledge and sensitivity to women's concerns should enrich students' educational experience both personally and professionally, give insight into their own situations and society, and enable them to work more effectively in their careers.
