The Department of Women & Gender Studies is housed in the College of Arts and Sciences, the intellectual and cultural heart of the University of Delaware. In addition to the requirements for Major and Minor degree programs, Women & Gender Studies majors must fulfill University breadth requirements and College of Arts and Sciences breadth requirements. The WGS Majors Checklist provides a course list of WOMS courses and the requirements they fulfill. Please note that updates may have occurred at the catalog level; consult the University's Catalog for requirement accuracy.

A college education requires some breadth of knowledge across diverse fields and perspectives. With this in mind, all University of Delaware students are required to complete a minimum of 12 credits from the list of University breadth courses. This includes 3 credits from each of the following categories. Students must earn a minimum grade of C- in each course to meet this requirement:
Creative Arts and Humanities (3 credits): These courses provide students with an understanding and appreciation of the visual and performing arts, of aesthetic forms, designs, or craftsmanship, or of literary, philosophical, and intellectual traditions. Courses may focus on a single aesthetic form or intellectual tradition, or cross-cultural comparisons.
History and Cultural Change (3 credits): These courses provide students with an understanding of the sources and forces of historical changes in ideas, beliefs, institutions, and cultures. Courses may address social, cultural, intellectual, economic, technological, artistic, scientific, and political development, changes in a discipline, or globalization and its effects.
Social and Behavioral Sciences (3 credits): These courses provide students with an understanding of the behavior of individuals and social groups in the context of their human and natural environments. Courses emphasize the empirical findings, applications, and methods of the social and behavioral sciences.
Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology (3 credits): These courses provide students with an understanding of fundamental and/or applied concepts and phenomena from mathematics, logic, natural or physical sciences, and technology including quantitative reasoning and methods used to approach and solve problems.
Note that students must take breadth courses from four different subject areas (e.g. the four-letter subject code WOMS, HIST, etc.). Students may not use a course that is cross-listed with a subject area that has already been used to satisfy a University breadth requirement. Students enrolled in a single major may not satisfy the breadth requirement with courses in the subject area of that major (e.g. Women & Gender Studies majors may not use WOMS courses). Students who are enrolled in more than one major or degree are allowed to meet the University breadth requirement by taking approved breadth courses from within the subject areas of their majors. The requirement may be fulfilled through a course or courses taken to complete other degree requirements, subject to the limitations above.
In addition to the requirements for major and minor degree programs, undergraduate students in College of Arts and Sciencesmust fulfill breadth requirements that expose them to representative coursework in each of the major disciplinary groupings in the College: Creative Arts and Humanities, History and Cultural Change, Social and Behavioral Sciences, and Mathematics, Natural Sciences and Technology.
The intent of these breadth requirements is to provide students with an appreciation for history, sensitivity to issues of national and global citizenship, and an understanding of the materials and methodologies of the academic disciplines that contribute to a liberal arts education. In the process, students in the College of Arts and Sciences develop scientific and quantitative literacy, higher-order critical thinking and research skills, oral, written and visual communication skills, and the cultural competencies that will assist them both in achieving a full and satisfying life and in competing effectively in a global job market.
Women & Gender Studies BA students may identify courses that fulfill University breadth requirements and College breadth requirements by navigating to the University Course Catalog to identify courses being offered during a current semester.
