Gender Studies


A gender studies minor offers students the opportunity to understand the role of gender in society, its structural framework in different countries, the perception of gender in ‘the West,’ and a study of how the concept of gender has evolved throughout the centuries.

TWU is one of the few Christian universities in North America that offers a gender studies program.

Offered through the Gender Studies Institute at TWU, a multi-disciplinary minor in gender studies provides students with several courses, ranging from feminist philosophy to engendered history.
