GCC 2013-14 Academic Catalog
Gender and Women’s Studies (lgw) Liberal Arts Option
Offers an opportunity to understand various academic disciplines through the material, social, and cultural experiences of women and through the concept and context of gender as it applies to the sexes and frames the way we make sense of the world. The program provides a focus for students interested in gender and women’s studies within the framework of the traditional skills and content of a liberal arts education.
Your next step
Transfer to a Baccalaureate program in any liberal arts discipline, women's studies, gender studies, queer studies, interdisciplinary studies, or related fields.
The Gender and Women's Studies option is one focused way to complete the Liberal Arts degree at GCC. By taking courses listed in this specific option, students complete courses that will help develop 100 and 200 course level knowledge and skills in a particular field. Students are advised to work closely with their GCC advisor to select the specific courses that will help meet their specific career or transfer goals. (Note: Students who complete this option will graduate with a diploma that reads "Associate in Arts in Liberal Arts.")
Please note that transfer to many four year colleges and universities will require the completion of four semesters of World Languages. Four sequential semesters of World Language classes from GCC will fulfill any UMass-Amherst language requirement.
