Women and Gender Studies

18 credit hours

College of Arts & Sciences/Behavioral and Social Sciences Department

The Women and Gender Studies program provides students with an interdisciplinary approach to studying women, gender, and sexuality locally, nationally, and globally. Courses in Women and Gender Studies emphasize women's contributions to society and the social, economic, and cultural institutions that oppress and empower men and women.

  • All courses for a minor must be completed at Webster University.
  • Courses completed with a grade below C- do not count toward fulfilling the requirement for a minor.
  • Courses used to fulfill a major may not be used to fulfill a requirement for a minor.


Students must complete 18 credit hours at Webster University designated as part of Women and Gender Studies. Although the courses WGST 1020 Introduction to Women and Gender Studies, WGST 2010 Feminist and Gender Theory, and WGST 4650 Women and Gender Studies Capstone are strongly recommended, they are not requirements for the minor in Women and Gender Studies. Students may take any WGST course listed in the catalog or any non-WGST course listed as possible electives in the major. Of these 18 credit hours, 6 credit hours must be at the 3000 level or above.
