In its interdisciplinary teaching programme, the Institute offers undergraduate courses through various departments and faculties on the St. Augustine Campus. It offers a Minor in Gender Studies in the Faculty of Humanities and Education and a Minor in Gender and Development in the Faculty of Social Sciences. Each of these programmes is available to students of the relevant faculties and in most instances, to students of other faculties or departments as well. Students are encouraged to take the courses offered as electives. IGDS offers undergraduate and graduate summer courses. Not all undergraduate courses are offered each year. Look out for advertising on the UWI online portals or contact us for information. Graduate summer courses are offered every other year.
✦ Verify the course/credit requirements for the minor and register for relevant courses.
✦ Visit your faculty office and complete and submit the requisite forms. (All students from all faculties can register for a minor.)
✦ Ensure you complete and submit these forms by the end of the ! registration or add/drop period of your final semester.
✦ Prepare for graduation by making sure that your minor is completed and will appear on your degree.
A minor comprises 15 credits. A student pursuing a major, in any faculty across campus, can use the 10 elective courses at level II/III to pursue up to two minors.
One of these can be a minor offered by the IGDS.
