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.
