The Major

Women's and Gender Studies 110 or Women's and Gender Studies 112, entry points to the major, are topical introductions to the field. Women's and Gender Studies 200 and 234 provide the theoretical and methodological tools for advanced work on women and gender. The capstone course offers students the opportunity to study a topic in depth and to produce a substantial research paper.

The major culminates in a senior comprehensive project, directed by advisers from two disciplines, that builds on the skills and interests developed in previous coursework in Women's and Gender Studies. Each student devises an appropriate program of courses in consultation with the major adviser.
