The WGS Portfolio Program and/or the WGS Portfolio Program with LGBTQ/Sexualities Studies Track are open to graduate students, from all departments, who wish to incorporate WGS into their course work.  When the program is completed, the student's official UT transcript will read, "Portfolio in Women's & Gender Studies." A printed certificate from the Center is also available upon request.

We will hold an information session about the new LGBTQ/Sexualities track Wednesday April 3, 12-1 pm, in the Gebauer (GEB) 4th Floor Conference Room that is next to the WGS offices.

For PhD students, 4 courses  (and for MA students, 3 courses) that fall within the LGBTQ/Sexualities subject area, with at least two from outside your home department and two outside.  Course should be listed in the Pink Book and/or approved by a WGS advisor and/or the LGBTQ/Research Cluster chair.  
2. Participation in the annual WGS graduate student conference.
