Each doctoral candidate will complete three required core courses involving theory, methodology, research skills, and professional development: G600 Concepts of Gender, G603 Feminist Theories, G702 Researching Gender Issues. Candidates will also complete a 12-credit-hour minor, which should be taken externally (e.g. in another department) or in an approved program listed in the Graduate Bulletin. Elective courses complete the required hours of gender-related course work.
Only those students intending to pursue the Ph.D. will be admitted to the program. However, a Master's degree may be obtained upon satisfactory completion of its requirements, which are: at least 30 credits of course work successfully earned, including 12 credits of outside GNDR courses and 9 credits of core GNDR courses and either a comprehensive MA exam or a substantive research paper (MA thesis) of roughly 50 pages.
