This course offers students an opportunity to pursue directed study in a topic of interest in women's and gender studies. No online study guide, required readings, or course materials are provided. This is a senior-level course and therefore students are expected to include and draw on a significant component of advanced, theoretical readings in feminism related to the area of study. Only students who have completed the directed study approval form and have it approved by the Course Coordinator may register in the course.
