Concentration

WGS prides itself on the broad range of its course offerings as well as the individual attention it offers to each student. Concentrators enjoy the opportunity to engage in small-group tutorials and to conduct original research in their chosen fields of interest, whether or not they choose to write a thesis

In keeping with our commitment to interdisciplinary study, we also actively welcome joint concentrators. Our students have joint concentrated with a wide range of concentrations, including:

  • African and African-American Studies
  • Anthropology
