Review thisMlist of study abroad courses that are approved for Gender and Sexuality Studies minor credit when you consider where to apply and when selecting courses once you are accepted. Please note the Loyola equivalents that are associated with each course (right most column, LUM OIP equivalent). This is important to (a) avoid registering for a course that you have already taken and (b) to secure credit from a relevant department when LUM OIP equivalent says, “Needs chair approval.” Please remember that Loyola University maryland has no control over when the courses are taught.

Large universities (Copenhagen, Cork, Melbourne, New Castle) may offer additional courses that will qualify for Gender and Sexuality Studies minor credit.  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.
