May be elected as a departmental concentration program
Prerequisite to Concentration. Women's Studies
240, or Women's Studies
100 and one 200-level Women's Studies course.
- Courses on Women: Concentrators must elect a minimum of 24 credits of upper level (300 and above) courses in Women's Studies or related areas, including A through D below. One of these courses must be on women of color.
- At least two different 340-level Women's Studies courses, or two upper-level courses approved as interdisciplinary by the program, or a combination.
- A practicum course, either WS
420, or an individually designed internship.
- Either WS
- Cognates: Three upper-level courses, not in Women's Studies or cross-listed, are required. In order to ensure that the interdisciplinary Women's Studies concentration is complemented by training in a single discipline, these courses will normally be in the same department. Cognate courses should not be courses on women but should provide supporting skills or contexts for the study of women.
Women's Studies concentration requirements are designed to encourage double concentrations in two ways: (1) by requiring only 24 credits of advanced-level courses on women; and (2) by requiring three, non women-related cognates in a single discipline.
Honors Concentration. Students who have maintained an overall GPA of at least 3.0 through the first term of their junior year are eligible for Honors concentration. Candidates for Honors must meet all the requirements described for Women's Studies concentration (listed above). In addition, they must elect WS
441 during the second term, junior year, and must write an Honors thesis during their senior year (given for credit as Women's Studies
