Student Spotlight: Caitlin Werner

Sophomore Caitlin Werner told us that one of the main reasons she decided to attend UD is because “they offer a great undeclared student program. Working with her UST advisor, Sharon Grayson, Caitlin has been able to explore various interests while taking classes that meet general requirements. She intends to pursue a minor in Spanish and study abroad in the future.

Caitlin’s advice for other students is to join a club or sport when you arrive on campus, because it provides a good way to connect with others. She participates in the Blue Hen Leadership Program and is a member of the RSO, Women in Business.

Major/Minor Spotlight: Sexualities and Gender Studies

Coordinated by Dr. Pascha Bueno-Hansen, the interdisciplinary Sexualities and Gender Studies minor explores the relationship of gender and sexuality to the law, politics, religion, psychology, medicine, education, and the arts. The SGST minor consists of 18 credits: three required courses and three elective courses, such as Foundations of Human Sexuality, Sociology of Sex & Gender, and Gay & Lesbian Film.


This minor is available to students in all majors and is particularly relevant for people who plan to pursue careers involving equity issues, including teaching, social work, human resources, and the health professions.
