WGS has compiled (almost) all the information undergraduates need to be a successful WGS major or minor.

Current Semester Course list

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

Students have until September 14 in Fall smesters and February 14 in Spring semsters to ADD or DROP classes (. Instructors can DROP students at any time if there is an approved justification. Students are encouraged to DROP instead of WITHDRAWING if they feel they will not be able to complete the course; a DROP does NOT affect GPA but a WITHDRAWAL does.

Students taking courses for CR/NC-- make sure you talk to the instructor in the first 9 weeks of class (2 months) regarding the advisability of doing so. Remember: a letter grade of "C" or better is required for CR; sometimes it's better to take the letter grade instead of the NC. Any questions, talk to an advisor in ARC (HUM 112).

WITHDRAWALS: justifications must fall within acceptable reasons in LCA policy: Withdrawal Policy

Advisors

Students should be sure to meet with their advisor in the first few weeks of the semester to discuss courses and degree program.

Office hours are posted in Humanities 315 and on the Department website under "Faculty".

Advising Forms

Students wishing to declare Women and Gender Studies as their major or minor should make an appointment with one of the undergraduate advisers. Before meeting with an adviser make sure to fill out page one of an advising form. Bring your unofficial transcripts and/or Academic Progress report, both available through your Student Center, to your first meeting.
