Richard Anderson, Ph.D., Chair
Gender Studies is an interdisciplinary minor that promotes the study of the status of men and women, historically and at present. In courses across the disciplines, questions are raised concerning the ways in which we think about the social order as well as the distribution of power and opportunity. Gender Studies encourages in students a spirit of inquiry that will prepare them to function effectively as they integrate themselves into a diverse and rapidly evolving society. The Gender Studies minor is 18 credits, with elective courses in history, literature, sociology and other programs at Loras College. Consult the website of the Division of Philosophical, Religious, Theological, Social & Cultural Studies for the current list of elective courses or contact one of the co-directors of the program directly.
