The Minor in Women's Studies is a multi-disciplinary programme offered to candidates for the degrees of Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science. The Minor programme is an alternative to a Minor offered by a single department and satisfies the degree requirement for a Minor.
The objective of the programme is to explore the experience and contributions of women from the perspective of different academic disciplines and to compare the situation of women in society with that of men. Assumptions about women and gender differences and the social implications of these assumptions will be explored. While consideration will be given to socially relevant issues, attention will also be paid to the implications for academic disciplines of the research on women and their contribution to society.
