Curriculum

About 70 – 80 Gender/Feminist/Women’s Studies courses are offered each year at the colleges, the majority of which are cross-listed courses. Each semester, IFC publishes a Women’s Studies course brochure that contains information about and descriptions of all Women’s Studies courses that will be offered the following semester.

Currently, those colleges with Gender/Feminist/Women’s Studies programs (Pitzer, Scripps, Pomona) review proposals from their own faculty members for cross-listing courses. The IFC Steering Committee reviews proposals for cross-listing courses from Harvey Mudd and Claremont McKenna, which do not have their own programs. (CGU courses are not part of the review process and are not listed in the course brochure unless open to undergraduates.)
