    Major in Women's Studies

    Ten courses make up the major, at least six must be at the 3000- level or higher:


    Three of these courses, in addition to Feminist Theory, Senior Seminar, and the internship, must be upper-division courses. Appropriate WSTD topics courses may also be used to fulfill the distribution requirements from the arts, humanities, and social and natural sciences.

    Courses in women’s studies are offered at all ACTC campuses, so there is a potential for duplication of content. Credit will not be given toward the major for two courses that overlap substantially in content. Students must consult with the women’s studies director to avoid duplicating courses.

    Transfer Students

    Century College students who transfer to Hamline University with a women’s studies certificate may finish a major in women’s studies by completing the six courses below. Students who transfer to Hamline University from other colleges and universities who wish to complete a major or minor in women’s studies are urged to consult with the director of women’s studies immediately upon transfer.
