Requirements for the Minor
The requirements for the minor include WGSS 28000, Introduction to Women’s Studies, and three additional courses. The introductory course provides an overview of this interdisciplinary area of study. One additional Women’s Studies WGSS course is required at the 40000 level. The remaining three courses are selected from a list of approved courses offered by departments and programs in the College of Liberal Arts. Some of these courses have departmental prerequisites. Although WGSS 28000 is not a prerequisite to any of them, it is recommended as the first course of the program.
