The minor in Women’s History explores the role and relevance of women throughout history. Program courses emphasize the integration of women’s stories and experiences into traditional narratives of history, and the ways in which highlighting these experiences challenges our understanding of the past. The minor covers the full span of world and United States history, with courses that focus on specific historical women and specific issues that affect women in particular.
In a world of increasing turmoil and change, Taylor University students of women’s history are grounded in the wisdom of the centuries and are poised to apply Christian principles and a biblical worldview in the profession of their choice.
The Women’s History minor prepares students for careers that involve critical thinking, information analysis, and communication of complex ideas. It also prepares students for further graduate study in history, women’s studies, and law, among other programs.
