All students in the major take a set of foundational courses, including Introduction to GSWS, Gender and Feminism(s), and LGBT Politics and History. Majors also complete an internship course and a senior seminar. Beyond these core courses, students select relevant courses based on their interests in the field, creating a unique concentration which may follow a social sciences or humanities track or which may be more eclectic. Our majors work closely with faculty advisors who encourage students to pursue academic honors by writing a senior thesis and to pursue pre-professional internships. Our two interdisciplinary minors, one in Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies and the other in Sexuality and Gender Identity Studies, are open to all students from across the UVM community.
