WGS & General Education
WGS and the General Education Curriculum at USM
USM students can complete a significant part of the general education core curriculum by taking Women and Gender Studies courses:
Entry year experience: "Gender, Representation, and Resistance" (EYE109)
Socio-Cultural Analysis: "Introduction to Women and Gender Studies" (WST 101)
Cultural Interpretations: "Women, Knowledge and Power" (WST 201)
Ethical Inquiry, Social Responsibility & Citizenship: "Politics of Difference" (WST 380)
Many Women and Gender Studies courses also satisfy either the Diversity or the International requirement and a WGS minor can be used to satisfy the "Cluster" requirement. For more information and advising, please contact the Women and Gender Studies office.
