Intro to Women's and Gender Studies 3 credits
Electives in at least two disciplines 21 credits
TOTAL 24 credits

Students must take at least 15 credits above the 200-level.

Students may count toward the major one internship via Career Services that deals with women or gender, with the approval of the WGS Center.

Directed Readings: Students may seek permission from the WGS Steering Committee to take no more than one directed reading course for credit toward the second major.
