Any student enrolled in a UW-Madison Ph.D. program can pursue a doctoral minor in Gender and Women’s Studies. The Ph.D. minor offers substantial and systematic training in the field of gender and women’s studies and can be tailored to a student’s specific interests in one of two ways – Option A or Option B. A Ph.D. minor in Gender and Women’s Studies is an excellent way to gain training in feminist analysis and research methods as well as in substantive topical areas related to women and gender that can be applied to one’s research field and to one’s teaching. Review the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research interests of Gender and Women’s Studies faculty in our directory and learn how the Office of the Gender & Women’s Studies Librarian can support your research.
The advisors for the doctoral Minor in Gender and Women’s Studies are the Graduate Program Manager and the Director of Graduate Studies.
