Women and Gender Studies - Graduate Program
The Master of Arts in Women and Gender Studies is a 30 credit program which includes both course work and a thesis. It can be pursued either full-time or part- time. The degree can be completed in two years. Graduate students have five years to complete all degree requirements. All students are required to complete the following courses:
- Theories of Feminism (3 credit hours)
- Feminist Methodology (3 credit hours)
- Graduate Seminar (3 credit hours)
- Elective in Theory or Method (3 credit hours)
- Independent Study/Electives (6 credit hours)
- Thesis (12 credit hours)
- FGSR 9000
Students are encouraged to consult with the Women and Gender Studies Program Coordinator to identify electives and independent study courses which support their special area of interest.
Note: Students will register once for the Thesis course (and be giving a grade of an IP until their thesis is complete). Students must register for FGSR 9000 in every semester in order to maintain their status as a graduate student.
