Gender Studies Minor Program

The purpose of the Gender Studies Minor (GSM), which offers cross-listed courses in sixteen departments across Bloomsburg campus, is the study of social, cultural, and historical constructions of gender and its intersections with other constructions such as race, class, nation, and sexuality.

The program investigates gender relationships and inequalities in a variety of societal contexts and strives to provide co-curricular experiences to enhance the Gender Studies Minor curriculum and raise awareness about issues of gender. Eighteen credit hours are required to complete this minor program.

Gender Studies Minor Launches New Blog

In an effort to provide students of the Gender Studies Minor the opportunity to tell more stories related to Gender and Identity on campus, the Gender Studies Minor is launching a new blog. The Blog will be operated and populated by stories written primarily by each semester’s GSM Intern. Every week, the student intern will present news and highlights about BU campus life, including Gender Studies course work, Gender Studies Alumni interviews, and other events relevant to the mission of the Gender Studies minor. The internship will provide each student with a professional opportunity to shape and curate blog content, practice journalistic skills, and contribute to the footprint of the Gender Studies minor on campus. Our hope is that the blog will also attract new students with an interest in conversations about gender identity and its intersection with other identity categories. We invite you to enjoy reading the words of our first intern, Lex Santiago:
