Recommended Program of Study

Women’s and Gender Studies majors should include: WMST 231 Women in Perspective or WMST 232 Honors Seminar: Women in Perspective in their first semester. This is an introductory course that fulfills some General Education (GenEd) requirements. WMST 233 International Perspectives on Women or WMST 234 Honors International Perspectives on Women is recommended but not required and also fulfills GenEd requirements. 

We also recommend that students majoring in Women’s and Gender Studies take the advanced composition course offered by Women's and Gender Studies, WMST 333: Women's Words, Women's Lives.  A course on minority women (either a WMST course or a departmental one) is strongly recommended. WMST 496 Internship is also recommended.

Students should consult the Undergraduate Catalog for the most up-to-date information on electives, course descriptions and prerequisites.
