A cognate in Women and Gender Studies is a three-course, or nine-credit, supplement to a graduate student’s main program of study. It is declared on the Graduate School form “Program of Study,” which is prepared by the end of the second semester of study.
Courses numbered 300-level and above can be used for the cognate. Students should contact the Director of Women and Gender Studies for consultation. It is not always known far in advance which courses will be offered for cross-listing, and the Director can assist students in such inquiries, as well as making the most academically coherent decisions.
