The Women’s Health minor is designed to enhance student knowledge of the bio-medical, economic, political, psychological, social, historical, and cultural factors that influence women’s health. This is designed to complement programs that prepare students for careers in nursing, social work, criminal justice, recreation, public relations, counseling, public health, medicine, and related fields. The minor includes WGS 200 (Introduction to Women’s Studies), WGS 399 (Global Women’s Issues), and NURS 370 (Women’s Health Issues). To complete the minor, students take six credit hours of approved Women’s Health electives (at least 50% of the content of such courses must address women’s health, broadly defined) and six additional credit hours of approved Women’s Studies electives for a total of 20 hours.
