The minor in Feminist Studies consists of at least six courses at the 100 level or above for a minimum of 30 and a maximum of 36 units. None of the units for the minor may count towards the student's major. The minor in Feminist Studies should be declared by Winter Quarter of a student's junior year.


  1. FEMST 101. Introduction to Feminist Studies. This must be taken before 103.
  2. Designated feminist theory course, or FEMST 103, Feminist Theories and Methods


A four-course thematic focus may be designed by the student or may follow one of the suggested clusters listed above. One course within the thematic focus should address crosscultural issues.
