Applicable Elective Courses

Departmental courses available to CGS majors and minors fall into two categories - applicable and petionable. Applicable courses are those approved as always applying to the CGS major and minor. Below is a list of those applicable courses within the Social Sciences and Humanities. Petitionable courses are either new and therefore not yet approved as applicable or are “topics” courses that focus on gender only in particular quarters. Petitionable courses may be approved by petition to the major/minor during the quarters in which they appear in the CGS Quarterly Newsletter.
