The secondary field in studies of women, gender, and sexuality has two purposes:
- to help qualify students for employment relating to studies of women, gender, and sexuality
- to help graduate students to form productive and lasting scholarly communities
Secondary field candidates complete four graduate-level courses in the studies of WGS, compose an article-length paper suitable for publication, and serve one semester as a salaried Teaching Fellow in a course offered by WGS faculty.
Full details about requirements are available on the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences' website.
Students with questions about the Secondary Field may contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Mari Ruti.
