Women, Gender & Sexuality Distinguished Major

Majors in Women, Gender & Sexuality (WGS) may, with the supervision of a WGS core faculty member, propose a Distinguished Major Project.  Working with that faculty member, Distinguished Majors complete a two-semester written thesis (approximately 35-40 pages in length) in their fourth year. The thesis allows students to pursue their own interests in depth and have the intellectual satisfaction of defining and completing a sustained project. The Distinguished Major Program is an especially good option for students considering graduate level work in any field.
