It is expected that within the next 20 years, women and ethic minorities will become the majority of the workplace. Understanding issues of economics, race, and gender will be key for both employers and employees. Women`s and Gender Studies courses also help women and men understand gender issues in relationship, families and social life.
To complete this concentration you must take HIS 6600 (Women in the Social Sciences) and at least 9 credits of course that are designated as Women`s Studies.
