  • Advising Tips: Students have to complete a petition process through the Registrar's Office for courses from abroad to fulfill the Gender and Women's Studies (GWS) general education requirement. However, the course - Gender and Sexuality in Modern Greek Culture, has already been petitioned by a previous student so it is now approved for the GWS requirement.
