Complementary courses are divided into Groups A and B, both of which are linked below. Group A features eight thematic groupings in order to ensure that students pursuing the Major, Honours, and Joint Honours programs are introduced to issues of gender and/or women and/or feminism across the disciplinary spectrum. Any Women's Studies courses taken beyond the requirements can be counted towards Complementary Group B and may not be counted toward Group A.
Students who are pursuing the Minor or taking a more limited number of credits related to Women's Studies can use the Group B course listing to find relevant courses offered by other departments and faculties.
Students should note that courses are only acceptable towards the Women's Studies Program when the topic is appropriate for Women’s Studies and the course significantly engages with gender and/or feminism and/or women's studies. If there is a course WHICH IS NOT LISTED and that you think could count as a Complementary Course towards the Women's Studies Programs, please contact the IGSF Administrative and Student Affairs Coordinator, Claire Michela, at 514.398.4400 x089872 or claire.michela [at] mcgill.ca (email), for approval.
