Mina Carson teaches courses in United States social and cultural history, in particular the Progressive and New Deal eras, women in the twentieth century, American families, and gay and lesbian movements. Her newest course, the history of psychotherapy, focuses on psychotherapeutic theories and practices in Western Europe and the United States. Carson is also a musician, having been one of those "girls with guitars" since junior high school in the 1960s. She collaborated with Dr. Susan Shaw of the OSU Women Studies program and Dr. Tisa Lewis of the Montreat (N.C.) College Social Science faculty on Girls Rock: Fifty Years of Women Making Music (University Press of Kentucky, 2004), a multifaceted venture with film and publication components. They are currently editing a short film, Loud!, on the first Rock and Roll Camp for Girls.
