Collaborative Programs

Collaborative Programs foster interdisciplinary discussions amongst faculty and graduate students. Students who successfully complete the requirements of collaborative programs receive an annotation on their academic transcript, in addition to their Master’s Degree in WGSI. Students may, however, benefit from the collaborative program in other ways (e.g. by signing up for a listserv, participating in workshops and conferences, etc.).

Many collaborative program requirements fulfill WGSI degree requirements; e.g. as elective courses. Courses in a Collaborative Program may, however, exceed minimum degree requirements in WGSI.

WGSI participates in the following collaborative programs:
