Courses in Other Codes

The courses listed below will also satisfy the upper division requirements of the WGS major/minor. These are courses that have been historically counted for various students.

Please note that this list is always under construction as faculty continually devise new classes. There may be courses in other codes that are not yet listed here but that will in fact count. There may be courses on this list that we once counted for a student, but are no longer offered. When in doubt, email us and ask!
