Women, Gender, Sexuality Studies
New Distribution Requirements for students entering Fall 2013!


WGSS has changed the major and minor requirements.  For students entering as of Fall 2013 the "Women of Color requirement" has been replaced with a distribution requirement. Majors will be required to take at least two courses (total) chosen from two of the following three categories: critical race feminisms, transnational feminisms and sexuality studies.   Minors will be required to take at least one course from one of the above categories. Continuing students see an advisor with questions.

Note:  If a course has more than one designation listed, it can only fulfill ONE of the requirements. The major can select which designation they want that particular class to fulfill.
