Theme: Sex and Gender in World History
Sample Course Path
People of all gendered identities have played significant roles in the making of history. This path combines a world focus with some specific regional case studies to address gender issues as they have played out, not only in recent times but also in the far past.
Please note that the courses listed below are only suggestions. Students’ individual selections may vary due to course availability and personal interest. See advisors for questions about specific courses or requirements.
Why It Works
This path emphasizes the history of gender and society around the world while also fulfilling the 49 required credits for the major.
A HIST 407 research seminar is required of all majors and counts toward the overall minimum for upper division credits. The topic in this example (Gender in History) also counts toward the World field, if needed.
German is merely a suggestion based on the prevalence of European history courses in this sample path. There are many language options available at UO to fulfill the second language requirement.
