More about this minor:

The Gender, Race, Culture, Science and Technology (GRCST) minor provides students with the opportunity to explore and analyze the historical and contemporary relationships between gender, race, culture, science, technology and medicine in local, national and transnational contexts.

Utilizing feminist and critical race approaches from the fields of gender and ethnic studies, the GRCST minor examines the role of cultural, ethical, social, political and economic factors in determining the norms, values and meanings of scientific, technological and medical practices, with an emphasis on the ways in which the production and applications of science, technology and medicine shape and are shaped by knowledge and beliefs about gender, race, class and sexuality.

Students completing the GRCST minor will gain important intellectual and practical skills for creating, enacting and evaluating efforts to create more socially just, equitable and inclusive science, technology and medicine in an increasingly diverse and globalized world.
