Women and Gender Studies Major
In addition to the general requirements for the B.A. degree, a major in women’s studies requires 30 credit hours. Six of those consist of the hours earned through completion of WMST 2010 and Women’s Studies 2020. Three of the hours are earned through completion of WMST 4010: Senior Seminar. In addition, SOC 2130: Basic Statistics fulfills the quantitative literacy general education requirement for Women’s Studies majors. The remaining courses should be selected from designated elective classes available from academic departments (see list below). Fifteen credit hours must be at the 3000 or 4000 level. Up to six hours may be independent study, and this is a worthwhile option. Approximately fifty courses are available for credit toward a women’s studies major or minor; for a list of courses offered during the current or coming term, contact the Women’s Studies office at 402-554-3834 or visit the Web at www.unomaha.edu/wmst. All courses presented for credit in the program must be taught by Women’s Studies faculty. The student must earn a minimum grade of “C” (2.0) in courses presented for credit in the program.
