Affiliate Grad Seminars

Affiliate department seminars available to CGS Grad Specialization students fall into two categories - applicable and petitionable. Applicable seminars are those pre-approved as applying towards the CGS Grad Specialization. Below is a list of those pre-approved seminars within the Social Sciences and Humanities. Petitionable seminars are either new and therefore not yet approved as applicable or are “topics” courses that focus on gender and sexuality only in particular quarters. Petitionable seminars may be approved by petition to the CGS Grad Specialization advisor and Director.
