Requirements

IRWGS offers undergraduates the opportunity to Major, Concentrate or Special Concentrate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.

 

Honors

Typically, honors in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies will be awarded to students with (1) a grade point average of at least 3.6 or higher in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies or related courses, (2) a senior thesis that has been recommended for honors by the professor of the senior seminar and the student’s faculty advisor, and (3) approval by the College. A limited number of students are granted this standing, and final approval originates from the Dean’s Office. However, the Undergraduate Director, in consultation with the senior seminar professor and the student’s faculty advisor, may propose honors for an extraordinary academic performance, with final approval resting with the College.
