Gender and Multicultural Studies Minor (GMCS)

Affirming Abilene Christian University’s mission statement, ACU offers an interdisciplinary minor in gender and multicultural studies in the U.S. context. All students from a variety of majors are welcome and encouraged to pursue this minor. The program’s three themes - theoretical and social frameworks, historical and literary frameworks, and contemporary applications - provide students in-depth experiences in theoretical, rhetorical, and empirical analysis of gender, race, ethnicity, class, nationality, and sexuality in their complexity.

The goals for the gender and multicultural studies minor are:

  • Provide students with a rich conceptual, theoretical, and applied understanding of gender and multicultural issues.
  • Address the intersections of gender, race, ethnicity, class, nationality, and sexuality in contemporary society.
  • Establish in the campus community an awareness of the values, contributions, and perspectives of minority groups.

The minor consists of 18 credit hours. It must include a minimum of 6 hours of advanced coursework (numbered 300-499). It must include courses from at least three disciplinary prefixes, and no more than 9 credit hours in a single prefix.
