Gender Studies

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

The gender studies major is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing upon the considerable expertise of faculty in several colleges across the University. The major (36 credits) consists of an introductory course in gender studies, four electives in the social sciences, four electives in the humanities, two unrestricted electives, and an internship or independent study as a culminating experience.

The list of elective courses ensures both breadth and depth. Students may choose from courses in womenís and gender studies, masculinity, and sexuality, most of which are cross-listed with other programs. Such breadth reflects the strength and flexibility of an interdisciplinary program. Appropriate depth is ensured in that majors are required to take at least 18 credits at the 300 level or above, and minors are required to take at least three such credits.
