You can reach out to Samantha Keyser in Advising Services if you need help filling out the form. Then send your filled out form to Dr. Nora Berenstain for approval. If you are taking or planning on taking a course that is not listed below but that you think could count toward WGS, send the syllabus to Dr. Nora Berenstain to see if it can be counted for WGS credit.

Graduate students, many of the 400-level courses below can be counted toward the WGS graduate certificate with the approval of the instructor and the WGS Chair.
