No more than 2 courses (8 credits) from any single department; no more than two courses (8 credits) may be completed in a study abroad program. Students may choose from the following but should also consult the list published each semester by the department for additional courses.

III. Internship (4 credits)

Selected in consultation with the advisor, and to be planned as experience/praxis linked to an aspect of the student’s major.


Majors, particularly those intending to pursue graduate studies, are strongly encouraged to have a Minor in a traditional discipline rather than in an interdisciplinary field. Other courses may be applied to the Major if they are proposed to and approved by the Women’s and Gender Studies Committee.
