General Studies Majors
The General Studies Program offers two degrees with a concentration in women's studies:
- Bachelor of arts in humanities
- Bachelor of arts in social sciences
These degrees allow you to personalize a program of study that combines a women's studies core curriculum with courses in a complementary area, such as comparative ethnic studies, English, or sociology.
B.A. in Humanities or Social Sciences
Women's Studies Concentration Requirements
24 credit hours (including 15 upper-division credit hours)

In addition to a 24-hour major concentration in women's studies, the General Studies Program requires a 15-hour minor concentration in another department or program. The minor concentration will determine whether the degree granted is in humanities or social sciences.
College requirements for both general studies options include 45 semester hours, plus 8 semester hours at the university level (or 2 years at the high school level) in a single foreign language.
NOTE: General Education Requirement (GER) courses in or cross-listed with W St and counted for the major concentration cannot be used to fulfill GER or college requirements.
