Marzia Caporale, Ph.D., Director

Courses for the Women’s and Gender Studies Concentration are drawn from departments across the University and are open to students in all majors. (To enroll in the concentration, students must see the Director of Women’s and Gender Studies.) The concentration consists of six courses including one required foundational course from a list of four: PHIL 218 - (P,D) Feminism: Theory and Practice , WOMN 215 - (D) Feminism and Social Change /SOC 315 - (D) Feminism and Social Change , OR SOC 220 - (S,D) Social Stratification 

Students are strongly encouraged to take two foundational courses, one in the social sciences and one in philosophy. Additional foundational courses beyond the required one will count as electives for the concentration. Many of the cross-listed Women’s and Gender Studies courses fulfill major, minor, cognate, and/or general education requirements. Students also are encouraged to do extracurricular activities that will enrich their classroom experience.

Students may, with the approval of the Women’s and Gender Studies Program Steering Committee, substitute honors tutorials or a thesis, study abroad courses, one reader, or a non-cross-listed course for a Women’s and Gender Studies course elective in cases where major graded requirements are completed in ways that meet the course criteria for Women’s and Gender Studies. Students seeking such substitutions should seek advice from the Director of Women’s and Gender Studies, preferably before completing the credits they wish to substitute.
