Gender Studies Program (GSP)

GSP 301. Introduction to Gender Studies. 3 Hours.

The course introduces basic topics, concepts and theories from the field of Gender Studies through an interdisciplinary and intercultural analysis of gender roles and their intersection with other social constructs such as race, class, sexuality, religion or disability. Successful completion of this course satisfies the Cultures and Peoples requirement for graduation.


GSP 448. Capstone Project: Gender Studies. 3 Hours.

Designed by the student, the Capstone Project combines an understanding of gender theory with study in two disciplines. The product of the project may take the form of a traditional research paper of 20-30 pages, but works of fiction or drama, field studies, multi-media presentations, or other formats are acceptable, subject to the approval of the coordinators. Products other than research papers must be accompanied by bibliography of sources and a 5-10 page statement explaining goals, results, and research methods. Students will work closely throughout the semester with two faculty advisors and will defend the results of their projects before a committee of three faculty members: two who teach courses in the program and one outside reader. At least one committee member will be a program coordinator. The defense will be open to the Wofford community. Prerequisite: Intructor permission.
