Women's Studies Minor

How do I sign up for the Women’s Studies minor? 
Pick up a form outside the WSP room (Haley 3227) or check out our course curriculum on this website. Then come by the Women’s Studies room during our office hours and we will advise you about whether the Women’s Studies minor will be right for you. 

How long does it take to sign up for a Women’s Studies minor? 
About five minutes.

Supposing I start and then decide I don’t want to finish.
That’s OK. You will have taken some great classes that go toward your degree at Auburn.

My advisor didn’t know about the Women’s Studies Program. Does this mean I shouldn’t  take the minor? 
Let your advisor know.   Show her/him the link on our website.  If it doesn’t fit your major, the advisor will tell you.

How many offices do I have to go to in order to sign up for the WS minor?
One. Haley Center 3227, during our office hours, which are posted.

What do I need to do in order to make sure the minor is on my transcript when I graduate?

1. You must take the two required courses, WMST 2100 and WMST 5980, plus three cross-listed courses, two of which must be 3000-level or above, and from different departments, to receive the minor. Keep in mind that WMST 5980 is offered infrequently, so plan ahead!

2. Our website has a list of courses that cross-list with the minor. Before registering for courses for a new semester, check our list to make sure the elective you have selected is approved by us to count toward the minor. If you have any concerns or need advice, drop by our posted office hours for help.

3. Once you declare the minor, it will appear on your Degree Works, which monitors your progress through the minor. If you have any concerns about your progress, speak to your Advisor or visit our office for assistance.
