Minor in Feminist Studies

Students interested in minoring in Feminist Studies should consult the program mentor. The minor proposal should be drafted in discussion with a faculty adviser selected from the Feminist Studies resource faculty list.

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 FEMST 103.
  2. Designated feminist theory course, or FEMST 103, Feminist Theories and Methods Across the Disciplines.


A four-course thematic focus may be designed by the student or may follow one of the suggested clusters listed in the "Bachelor of Arts in Feminist Studies" section of this bulletin. One course within the thematic focus should address race/ethnicity and/or global perspectives.
