All courses taken outside Women's Studies 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 Women's Studies but you register for it in the other department, you may count that course towards your Women's Studies major or minor without getting approval from the Curriculum Committee.
