Secondary Field

The flexibility of WGS's secondary field requirements allows students to sample from the rich course offerings in WGS while furthering or complementing their work in their home department.

To declare yourself as a secondary field student, complete the secondary field option on our plan of study form to indicate how you plan to complete the course requirements and make an appointment with one of the WGS advisers to discuss your plan. Along with concentrators, declared secondary fielders receive priority for admission to WGS seminars and other limited-enrollment courses. 

Requirements

Secondary Field—5 courses (20 credits)

  • Either the History foundation / WGS 1200 or the Theory foundation / WGS 1210
