WGST 498 Q* - Capstone Seminar (3 credits)

(Prereq: nine hours of minor-designated courses including WGST 103 ) This class is the “capstone” to the Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) minor, an opportunity for years of coursework and skills to culminate in a substantial independent project. The bulk of the semester is spent developing, researching, and writing/executing an original paper or project that makes a singular contribution to the intellectual community of WGS. Projects are designed and crafted so that they can be used as writing samples, conference presentations, or article drafts to help students transition into the next stage as WGS scholars, activists, and professionals. This course is run workshop-style, which will ensure that students are continuously working on their projects and receive constructive feedback from the instructor and fellow classmates. F.
