Additional Interdisciplinary Courses
In addition to departmental courses the College of Arts and Sciences offers several interdisciplinary courses that may fulfill Core Curriculum and certain major requirements. Interdisciplinary courses are taught, both individually and in teams, by faculty from various arts and sciences departments.
Students interested in taking any of the following courses should refer to the A&S Core Curriculum or consult with an adviser in the appropriate department.
The growth of Women’s Studies and Gender Studies programs across the United States and at Seton Hall testifies to the utility and versatility of an 18-credit minor in Women and Gender Studies. The minor is an excellent complement to virtually any major and strengthens students’ academic perspectives and skills. The minor also prepares students for the realities of a competitive and rapidly changing job market. Students’ readiness for the professions (law, medicine, education) and the corporate world is greatly enhanced by a rigorous analysis of gender and its importance in the wider culture. Students who have explored the disciplines through the gender lens will be better prepared to understand and manage the complexities of the work world, their society, and the world beyond.
The women and gender studies minor at Seton Hall University is an interdisciplinary exploration of the experiences of women and the diverse perspectives on women and gender. Courses will investigate the roles of gender in society and culture.
Students must take at least one course from Behavioral Sciences and one course from Humanities. The third and fourth electives may be from either area, or students may choose to take a 3-credit Independent Study (WMST 3193 Independent Study) as an elective.
