Study Abroad

Some study abroad programs offer the opportunity to take gender studies course work.  For example, in the past several years, the Copenhagen program has offered, Human Trafficking in Global Context, Gender and Sexuality in Scandinavia, Gender Perspectives on Human Rights, Women. Art and Identity, and Prostitution and the Sex Trade in Europe. Students, please follow the instructions for qualifying a course from another institution for gender studies credit.  This is an important step to ensure that each course has the appropriate gender content and that you do not duplicate a course that you have already taken at Loyola.
