Started in 1981, the Women's Studies Program is an interdisciplinary program that examines the cultural and social construction of gender, explores the history, experiences and contributions of women to society, and studies the influences of gender on the lives of women and men. The program emphasizes critical thinking across disciplines vital to success during and following formal education.
Texas Tech offers a minor in Women's Studies. Goals of the minor include helping students interpret concepts of gender and gendered identities in different social, cultural and political contexts.
The program is administered by the Director of Women's Studies. A minor in Women's Studies consists of 18 hours of courses as approved by the director.Twitter
