Internships: Recognizing that Women's and Gender Studies minors need the opportunity to obtain pre-professional work experience the Department offers an internship course option. Recent students have interned with Planned Parenthood of Otsego County, Rape Crisis, the Violence Intervention Program, and New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence (lobbying/advocacy) and the Gender & Sexuality Resourse Center on campus.
Career Opportunities: Most graduates in Women's and Gender Studies eventually work in four areas: social services, education, business, or government. Experience and knowledge of gender and issues of diversity are also an asset for individuals working in mass media, publishing, advertising, and personnel. Teaching and social service are fields most closely associated with Women's and Gender Studies, areas of improving employment prospects. Many of our graduates have gone on to obtain MSWs, MBAs, Ph.D.s and law degrees, and to fulfilling careers as lawyers, therapists, teachers, social service administrators, and editors.
Notes: 1. Check college catalog course descriptions for prerequisites. 2. College rules pertaining to curriculum majors also apply to curriculum minors (GPA of at least 2.0 in courses applied toward minor)
