Many offer interdisciplinary courses as well as internships. Some programs offer minors (denoted by Min) or certificates (denoted by Cer); others offer major concentrations in women's studies or award A.A., B.A., M.A., or Ph.D. degrees. Programs listed without a specific label offer or coordinate elective courses. Where no coordinator, director, or chairperson is listed, the program may be in the process of organization, or it may have chosen to function through a committee, or to rotate the administrative function.
