Honors Series

The Critical Gender Studies Honors Program allows advanced critical gender studies majors to pursue individual projects in the context of collective intellectual exchange with their peers and advising faculty. Students are eligible if they a) have senior standing at the time they begin the program, and b) are approved by the critical gender studies faculty director and steering committee. Normally, students eligible for honors will have a 3.5 grade point average in upper-division courses taken for the major, but highly motivated students who do not meet this criterion may be admitted to the program at the discretion of the director and the critical gender studies steering committee.

CGS 190. Honors Seminar

CGS 196A. Critical Gender Studies Honors Research

CGS 196B. Honors Thesis

Special Studies

Many Critical Gender Studies majors and minors elect to do research under the rubrics of Directed Group Study (198), Independent Study (199), internships, and mentor programs. Because these courses can be taken only with a P/NP grade option, the number of such courses to be applied to the major should be discussed with a Critical Gender Studies advisor. Some graduate and professional schools prefer to evaluate a student's transcript with letter grades. College guidelines and requirements for grade options also vary. Please see college academic advisors and Critical Gender Studies advisors.

CGS 198. Directed Group Study

CGS 199. Independent Study
