REQUIREMENTS?

To receive a minor in Women’s Studies, you must complete 18 credits of Women’s Studies courses or cognates (in consultation with your advisor) – which are courses that may not be listed as WS, but still count toward the minor because they relate topically. One of those courses (3 credits) must include WS 200 Intro to Women’s Studies, the only required core course for this minor. The OK Courses for Minor-ongoing is frequently updated, so check with Dr. Eckstein to see if a specific, current course can count toward your minor.
