Gender and Health Major Requirements

Students majoring in Gender and Health are encouraged to develop individualized programs of study in consultation with a department advisor. Major requirements ensure that students are exposed to a wide variety of disciplines important to the study of gender and health through a feminist lens. 

The Gender and Health major requires a total of 33 credits. 27 credits must be taken in gender and health courses, while the remaining 6 are to be taken in cognate courses that provide complementary skills but are housed in a different department. WGS 220: Perspectives in Women's Health, is a prerequisite for the major. Students should consult the worksheet for major requirements when planning their program. 

A Note Regarding LSA Distribution Requirements

If you have two majors, you may choose one of the majors to count for LSA distribution (HU, SS, ID credit).  If Gender and Health is your single major, you may not count any of those courses toward distribution.  Courses in a single major may count for University requirements (R&E and upper level writing).
