Core Courses

SWGS 501 - FEMINIST DEBATES
This course identifies and traces interdisciplinary debates about major issues in women, gender, and sexuality studies. While the content will vary, the course will always be attentive to the historical and theoretical context of the debates in question and to the intersection of these debates with others. Designed to introduce students to issues and methods that can help shape their dissertation plans, this course focuses on both influential and cutting edge research in and across the disciplines.


SWGS 502 - GENDER, THE DISCIPLINES, AND INTERDISCIPLINARITY
Structured as a workshop, this course enables certificate students to critically engage cross-disciplinary feminist scholarship in their work by transforming existing seminar papers into works that are of publishable quality. Pre-requisites: SWGS 501
