Concentration Requirements

 

Gender and Sexuality Studies (GSS) is an interdisciplinary concentration that envelops a broad array of scholarly domains tied thematically to an emphasis on the importance of gender (and all related elements) as a core category of analysis. Feminist in scope, an underlying belief in the equal value of all people permeates GSS domains of inquiry and study. The GSS Concentration offers cross-listed courses that consider the centrality of women, masculine gender, sexuality, and transgender issues in relation to other cultural frameworks such as race, class, age, and sexual orientation.   Students moderate into both the GSS Concentration and a primary program (e.g., Psychology, Anthropology, Literature, Biology).

 

Moderation Requirements:

 

1.     GSS cross-listed course

2.     GSS cross-listed course

 

In consultation with faculty from the GSS Concentration and their primary discipline, students declare a concentration in Gender and Sexuality Studies at the time of their Moderation into the primary program or thereafter at a separate Moderation board meeting.  Students must fulfill the Moderation requirements of both the primary program and the Gender and Sexuality Studies Concentration.   At least one moderation board member must be from the GSS Faculty.

 

Graduation Requirements:

 

3.     Advanced Gender Studies Seminar or Tutorial

4.     Senior Project I

5.     Senior Project II

 

The Senior Project in the primary program must encapsulate gender and/or sexuality inclusion and analysis.  At least one Senior Project board member should be a core faculty member from GSS.
