Students majoring in Women's Studies 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 and practices important to feminist thought.
The Women's Studies major requires a total of 33 credits. 27 credits must be taken in Women's Studies courses, while the remaining 6 are to be taken in cognate courses that provide complementary skills but are housed in a different department. Women's Studies 240: Introduction to Women's Studies, is a prerequisite for the major, and only two additional courses may be taken at the 200 level. 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 Women's Studies is your single major, you may not count any of those courses toward distribution. However the upper level writing requirement may be done in a single major. Courses in a single major may count for University requirements (R&E and upper level writing). Questions? Email email@example.com.
