All minors must take WGS 201 Women's and Gender Studies: Frameworks and Issues. Because this course provides a theoretical framework, women’s and gender studies students are encouraged to take it as early as possible in pursuing a minor.
Note: PSYC 383 Psychology of Gender, PSYC 384 The Life of a Psychologist: Women in Science Making the Links Between their Work and their World and SPAN 425 Hispanic Women Writers require prerequisite courses, which will increase the total number of credits for the minor.
- No more than 6 credits may be accumulated from WGS 390 Cooperative Education, WGS 480 Independent Study and WGS 490 Practicum.
- Students may apply to have a Critical Inquiry Seminar, Capstone and other Concordia courses counted toward completion of a women’s and gender studies minor if the content, pedagogy and assignments of the course fit the goals and outcomes of the minor.
