Overview

Because the Women and Gender Studies program from Alma College is interdisciplinary, you’ll develop a strong background in the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences while examining topics and issues concerning women, gender and sexuality.

As you construct a minor based on your interests, you’ll have many opportunities to create their own coursework through independent studies and work closely with faculty members.
