Psychology & Social Science Bachelor’s Degree Program
The gender studies minor seeks to enable students to develop an understanding of women and other marginalized groups by considering perspectives of the past, present, and future. The gender studies program at BVU uses an interdisciplinary approach to explore how traditionally oppressed groups have contributed to knowledge, history, and culture.
BVU’s gender studies minor is truly interdisciplinary. The program is composed of courses from various disciplines across campus, including psychology, art, digital media, literature, biology, and history. Students also design their own capstone experiences based on their interests and major, which can take the form of a research study, a creative work, or a community engagement project.
