The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major represents an interdisciplinary curriculum composed of course work in the social sciences and humanities with gender as the focal point of analysis. The curriculum examines women’s experiences, past and present, through feminist theory and research to better understand differences in power and privilege based on gender as well as race and ethnicity, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual identity, age, physical appearance, and mental or physical ability. Many classes incorporate a social activism component, and students are required to complete an internship to put their course work into action as well as a senior research project to understand and contribute to the scholarship in this field. A total of 51 credits is required for the major, 43 credits of required Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies core courses and 8 credits of elective courses chosen from Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies or Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program courses. An approved program course is one that has a focus on gender and/or women's issues, is taught in a unit other than the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, and has been approved as fulfilling the requirements of a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies course. No more than 9 credits of Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program courses may be used toward the major. All required course work must be taken on campus and no more than 6 credits of online elective course work can be used toward the on-campus major.
