This course provides an overview of psychological, social, physical, and emotional issues related to men's lives. Major topics include: gender construction, men and work, men and health, men in relationships, male sexualities, men in families, and masculinities in the media and popular culture.
We've offered this course as a special topics for a long time. It is a popular course so we've decided to make this an addition to our undergraduate bulletin.
Below please see the letter of approval from Dr. Ed Madden, Chair of WGST.
1 October 2018
To the curriculum committee:
This letter serves to indicate that I approve of the new cross-listed course proposal PSYC 432/WGST 432, Men & Masculinity. This course has been taught for several years as a special topics cross-listed course for both Psychology and Women’s and Gender Studies. It has a consistently strong enrollment, and is an important part of the WGST curriculum.
Director, Women’s & Gender Studies
Course title and description must match that of WGST 432 in order for these two courses to be cross-listed. For consistency, this course should be numbered PSYC 432.
A letter of concurrence is needed from WGST and should be attached to this proposal. As well, WGST should submit a Course Change Proposal for WGST 432 in order to add the cross-list.
returned for revisions
I don't know if we need a letter of concurrence, as Ed Madden, Director of Women's and Gender Studies is an approver of this proposal.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We have approved the proposal and are moving it forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
Note, normally we would want to have a companion proposal from WGST 432 in order to cross-list these two courses, but it is obvious from the documentation provided that is the intent. We went ahead and Approved the cross-list, with the intent of also adding it to WGST 432.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
