Gender and Diversity Studies Minor


Requirements if your 1st semester at Xavier was in 2010 or earlier

The GDST Minor is a 15 credit hour program

Students must complete 15 credit hours of GDST approved electives.  This must include at least one course at the 300-level or above to count as their exit seminar and half of the credit hours completed must be in courses at the 200-level or above.

Courses may be arranged to overlap with core curriculum and major requirements. A 2.000 cumulative average must be attained in all GDST courses.


More than anything else, the program taught me to better understand myself, and as a result, helped me engage with and affirm the unique lives of others. In my work experience and graduate school, that ability has proven indispensable.
