A gender cognate course is one in which the student negotiates a contract in a non-gender focused class to add a significant and theoretically focused gender component to normal class requirements. These components may include, but are not limited to, additional readings and guided research of a typical paper. These additional components could factor into an honors contract. The course professor must be committed to providing guidance in the area of gender analysis as it affects the content of the course. The contract should be developed in consultation with the director of the gender studies minor.
Only one interim course may count towards the minor.
