The Women’s Studies Program offers an interdisciplinary graduate minor in Women’s Studies, open to any graduate student. The minor provides students with specific coursework in women’s and gender studies and a teaching practicum that helps prepare them to teach an introductory women’s studies course. The minor is recommended for students who seek positions in women’s and/or gender studies departments or joint positions for which part of the responsibility is to women’s and/or gender studies.
Students are required to complete 10 hours of graduate-level coursework, including WMST 6980 (Feminist Theory; 3 hours) and WMST 7910 (Teaching Practicum; 1 hour). Students fulfill the remaining hours with graduate courses cross-listed with Women’s Studies; these must be from outside of the student’s home department. See the Women’s Studies Program website for a full listing of course offerings. http://www.cla.auburn.edu/womensstudies/womens-studies-minor/graduate-curriculum/
