    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.
