Campus Resources

For a complete list of all WGS courses and their attributes, pre-requisites, and other information, please go to the Course Bulletin page.

Located in Humanities 316, this space is usually available for study and small social gatherings, Monday-Friday 9-5. It is closed Fall 2020 but stay tuned for Spring 2021 news! 

The resource room also has a refreshed (non-circulating) library, with many current course texts and books of interest to WGS students. Browse the complete WGS library.

The Advancement to Candidacy (ATC) is filed after the student has completed a minimum of 12 units, with a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better, and before completing 27 units of work applicable to the M.A. degree. Once the ATC form is approved, the student is advanced to candidacy. Further information may also be found at the Division of Graduate Studies website.
