Women's Studies Minor

The Women’s Studies (WS) minor is a multidisciplinary, integrated program that seeks to empower NSU students to be socially responsible global citizens through fostering learning about gender roles and relations across cultures and history. Honoring both the university’s history as a female seminary and the legacy of Wilma Mankiller, the first female chief of the Cherokee Nation and Sequoyah Fellow at NSU, the WS program prioritizes study of minority women, indigenous women, and women’s leadership.
