M.A. Education & Society - Non-Thesis - Gender & Women's Studies

The MA Education & Society - Non-Thesis option – Project consists mostly of coursework but includes a project, which is worth 6 credits of the total program. It is less research-oriented than the thesis option and suitable for practitioners interested in professional development with a theoretical orientation.

The graduate option in Gender and Women’s Studies is an interdisciplinary program for students who meet the degree requirements in a participating unit who wish to earn 6 credits of approved coursework focusing on gender and women’s studies, and issues in feminist research and methods. In the graduate option in Gender and Women’s Studies, the M.A. thesis must be on a topic centrally relating to issues of gender and/or women’s studies.
