Courses in WGSS

The WGSS Course Guides contain course information that was available in our office by the publication deadline for pre-registration. While we try to update information as we receive it, check Spire for exact and up-to-the-minute course information about UMass courses or check with the appropriate department.  

Faculty can submit courses for course guides at this link:  Course Submission Link

To register for a course at Amherst, Hampshire, Mount Holyoke or Smith College, UMass students should contact the Five-College Exchange Office at 413-545-5352 to register.  Five Colleges students see the Five College Registration Guide.    

For course listings and information about Five College Certificates relevant to WGSS, check websites:  Reproductive Health, Rights and Justice, Queer and Sexuality Studies, and Culture Health and Science

Please contact Linda Hillenbrand about changes or questions pertaining to all course guides. Any changes after the first publication date of our online course guide will be in red. If we left out a course that has WGSS content, or if you think a course was inappropriately listed, please let us know.


Students can petition to have a course count if it's not listed in this guide.   Undergrads, please fill out this Google Form to petition for an elective to count towards WGSS.   Graduate Certificate students can petition for courses to count with this Google Form.  Questions»
