Additional Requirements

16 additional credits from the following:

  • 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. For procedures and forms contact the co-directors.

Note: PSYC 383, PSYC 384 and SPAN 425 require prerequisite courses, which will increase the total number of credits for the minor.

All minors must take WGS 201. 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.
