Major program: The major requires a minimum of ten credits. The core of the major is an individually designed concentration consisting of four courses. The concentration should be a well-focused topic which requires an interdisciplinary approach. When students declare a Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major, they are assigned to an advisor who will then work with them to design a concentration. Not all of the courses which contribute to the concentration need be FGSS listings. A 500 word proposal describing the concentration must be approved by the student's advisor, and submitted to the FGSS office no later than fall semester of the junior year.
