The remaining 15 credits may be selected from other GWS courses, or approved cross-listed courses offered through other academic departments.

The GWS Advisory committee recommends that students majoring in Gender and Women's Studies either take an additional 18 credits in one area as a minor or pursue a double major so as to combine their interests in Gender and Women's Studies with a traditional discipline.
