The program in Women's Studies, which includes this interdepartmental major, is supervised by a Committee composed of faculty members who teach courses dealing with the position and concerns of women. Cornell's offerings about women consist both of courses lodged in departments and courses offered by Women's Studies itself. This model seeks to integrate feminist scholarship into the curriculum of the disciplines themselves while also providing key courses that draw upon the interdisciplinary nature of Women's Studies.
Major: A minimum of eight course credits, which include WST 171, 271, one 300-level Advanced Topics course (excluding Group and Individual Projects), and WST 411; also four course credits selected either from additional Women's Studies courses, or from this list of relevant courses:
ANT 271 (Women's Roles in Cross-Cultural Perspective), 275 (The Black Woman in America); ART 271 (Feminist Art); CLA 264 (Women in Antiquity); EDU 255 (Gender in American Education); ENG 335 (Virginia Woolf); FRE 254 (French Women Writers in Translation); PHI 352 (Philosophy of Feminism); POL 361 (Race, Sex, and the Constitution); PSY 374 (Psychology of Women); SOC 273 (Families in Social Context), 343 (Women: Oppressions and Resistances), 365 (Sexualities), and 366 (Gender and Social Institutions). Consult the advisor for other relevant courses that may be counted toward the major.
Minor: A minimum of five course credits which include WST 171, 271, one Advanced Topics course at the 300 level, and two additional courses selected from the Women's Studies topics courses or other departmental courses approved for Women's Studies credit. These two additional courses may not be counted toward a major in another department or program.
