 At least one of the following:
WS250 (Queer Theory, Queer Lives)
WS260 (Women of Color in the U.S.)

The remaining courses, one of which must be at the 300-level, can be drawn from the following regularly offered courses and/or from the list of cross-listed electives approved by the Women’s Studies steering committee and announced each semester.

WS262 (Transnational Feminisms)
WS342 (Women, Health and Social Control)
WS362 (Feminist Approaches to Environmentalism)
WS355 (Women in Education)
WS332 (Women, Culture and Identity)

Studying in an off-campus DePauw-sponsored or GLCA program, such as the Antioch Comparative Women's Studies Program in Europe, is encouraged for majors and minors. Appropriate courses from off-campus may be applied toward the minor upon approval by the Director of Women's Studies.
