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.
- No more than 6 credits may be accumulated from WGS 390 Academic Internship, WGS 480 Independent Study and WGS 490 Practicum.
- Students may apply to have a First-Year 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. For procedures and forms contact the co-directors.
