You may also petition the GSWS Curriculum Committee to fulfill the Humanities requirement with other courses either cross-listed with or offered in the following departments: American Studies (if the course has a humanities focus); Art and Art History; Africana Studies (if the course has a humanities focus); Classical Studies; English; Literary and Cultural Studies; Modern Languages & Literatures; Music; Philosophy; Religious Studies; Theatre, Speech & Dance.

All courses taken outside GSWS and used to fulfill credits towards the major must be approved by the student's advisor and the Curriculum Committee. However, if you take a course that is cross-listed with GSWS but you register for it in the other department, you may count that course towards your GSWS major or minor without getting approval from the Curriculum Committee.
