DEAD--5C GWS/GFS Degree Requirements

Map by Alex Chappell Last updated 6.3.11 Key to colors and symbols: -Yellow areas are places I want to flesh out. -Green thumbs up symbol indicates a course I think has research assisgnment/instruction potential About the Map: Includes requirements for Majors at the 3 Major granting colleges (PO/PZ/SC) and for minors at CMC/HMC Info on degree requirements taken from department websites and course catalogs and has not (as of 5.31.11) been verified with the campuses for accuracy. Yellow areas are places I want to flesh out. Information on Scripps revised major is taken from a SCR FEC word document that Prof. Chris Guzaitis shared with me 6/2/11. Students who enter in FA 2010 who declare GWS will follow new major requirements. Students who matriculated before 11-12 school year who have not yet declared may use old or new major requirements. Purpose of the Map: to understand requirements for majors to learn what courses are common (if any) to all 5C majors to figure out logical places for research instruction

GWS Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives The Gender and Women's Studies (GWS) Program focuses on the culturally and historically specific production of sexual difference, on the wide-ranging impact of feminist research both inside the academy and in the larger society, and on the intersections of gender with other social forces such as race, sexuality, class and colonialism. The program fosters rigorous critical inquiry into these multiple forms of difference, challenging conventional cultural assumptions about women, sexuality and gender roles, and promotes the development of new ideas and research in feminist scholarship within an open, supportive environment. Gender and Women's Studies majors will be able to: Ascertain how gender functions in the world; Understand how the experiential refutes and complicates theoretical claims; Engage gender theory, and understand how such analytical frameworks have been generated; Generate new knowledge through research, and perform critical analysis of that knowledge; Recognize how knowledge about gender is produced, including the lived experience of gender (bodily knowledge); Situate primary research within a critical framework.

CMC

Gender Studies Sequence Claremont McKenna College offers a sequence in gender studies through participation in the six campus Intercollegiate Women's Studies Program of The Claremont Colleges. The curriculum is particularly well-suited to the CMC focus on leadership in business, public affairs, and the professions. The gender studies sequence is designed to accompany a major in another academic discipline. With its emphasis on the relationships between gender and society historically and cross-culturally, and on the changes now occurring in the roles of women and men, on the participation of women in the major institutions of society, and on women themselves, the sequence is an ideal accompaniment to virtually any major at CMC. The transcript indicates official completion of this sequence. Interested students must consult with Professor Humes or Professor Bilger, Gender Studies faculty advisors for CMC. Sequence Requirements The gender studies sequence requires completion of five courses, distributed as follows: 1. ID 26. Introduction to Gender and Women's Studies, or another course in gender theory approved by the CMC faculty advisor 2. One course comparing women's roles in different times and cultures 3. One course on biology or psychology and gender 4. Two elective courses to be selected in consultation with a CMC faculty advisor At least one of the five courses must be completed at CMC. Majors in Gender and Women's Studies CMC students may elect to complete a full major in Gender & Women's Studies through Pomona College or Scripps College. A major in Gender and Feminist Studies is available through Pitzer College. The Faculty CMC Faculty: CMC faculty liaisons familiar with the gender studies sequence and offcampus offerings in their discipline include the following faculty: Bilger (literature), Cody (history), Gilbert (religious studies), Halpern (psychology), Humes (religious studies), Rentz (literature), Selig (history), M. Shelton (modern languages), J. Smith (economics), Vega-Duran (spanish), and Walsh (literature). Courses Students may choose from a wide array of interdisciplinary courses approved by the Intercollegiate Women's Studies (IWS) program of The Claremont Colleges.
