  6. Women’s & Gender Studies Graduate School Handbook by Liberal Arts Career Services for UT undergraduates interested in graduate studies. This handbook is not meant to outline our program (UT WGS) specifically, rather it is meant to be a general introduction to WGS programs at universities across the US. Therefore some of the terminology and program sequences may be quite different from what is used at the UT CWGS.

  7. Women’s & Gender Studies Graduate School Handbook by Liberal Arts Career Services (3MB PDF) for UT undergraduates interested in graduate studies.  This handbook is not meant to outline our program (UT WGS) specifically, rather it is meant to be a general introduction to WGS programs at universities across the US. Therefore some of the terminology and program sequences may be quite different from what is used at the UT CWGS.

  8. Ms. Magazine 2009 Guide to Women's Studies (4MB PDF) compiled by the National Women's Studies Association. The PDF contains a listing of BA, MA, and Ph.D. programs offered in the US, including programs offered online.  -Note there are some errors.  University of Texas at Austin should be included in the undergraduate section, and University of Texas at Austin's numbers from the MA section are incorrect (those are actually from our undergrad programs).  University of Texas at Austin does not currently offer a PhD.

  9. The Center for Teaching and Learning hosted an "Interviewing for a Faculty Position Workshop" in May 2012.  CTL had such an overwhelming response to the workshop that they were unable to accommodate all the students who signed up to attend.  The Center for Teaching and Learning was able to film and record the event.  To view the presentation click on this link: http://bit.ly/CTLWEBCAST_5_01_2012
    If you have any questions, please direct them to Joanna Gilmore with the Center for Teaching and Learning whose contact information on their website.
