Bachelor of Arts in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
The major in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies requires 63 units and may be taken as a single major, as one of multiple majors, or as a secondary major. FEMGEN core courses must be taken for a letter grade. A student wishing to major in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies should apply to the major via AXESS, preferably by the autumn quarter of the junior year. The student will then select a sub-plan or develop an individualized proposal describing a thematic focus and outlining a course of study, approved by a prospective adviser from the list of affiliated faculty. The proposal is then submitted to the Program Office (Bldg. 460, Room 216) for approval by the Director.
A maximum of 10 of the 63 units for the major may be taken on a credit/no credit or satisfactory/no credit basis; a maximum of 10 units may be taken as independent study or directed reading.
The Double Major & Secondary Major
If taken as a double major, none of the 63 units counted toward the major in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies may overlap with units counted toward the major in another department or program. If taken as a secondary major, all units counted toward the Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major may also be counted as fulfilling the major requirements in another department or program if that department or program consents.
