WS 499 - Women’s Studies Capstone Course

Credits: 3

Prerequisite: 24 hours of women’s studies coursework, including WS 200 , and senior standing

WS 499 is an integrated and interdisciplinarystudy of major themes, issues and problems in women’s studies.  It explores key features of women’s studies research and engages critical debates on methodology, epistemology, and the relationship between research and social change.  It is also an opportunity for four years of coursework to culminate in a substantial independent project.  The class will explore the state of the field by observing reflections of the “founding mothers” of women’s studies and by examining leading journals and texts in the field. 

Note:  Required of all majors.
