Fall 2024 Semester Notice!



Dear WSGS majors, minors, and friends: 

I’m writing today to remind you that undergraduate registration for Fall 2024 classes will begin on Monday, 15 April. This special pre-registration message includes information about the classes the WSGS program will be offering, as well as cross-listed and tagged classes offered through other programs and departments. We also are including a link to a video on the web that explains the WSGS major and minor. As always, if you have more questions, don’t hesitate to get in touch through the program email account: wsgsprogram@luc.edu. You can also contact me directly at ehemenway@luc.edu


In order to help you prepare for enrolling in fall courses, I will be holding extended office hours during the weeks of 1 and 8 April, both in person (in my office in Crown 117) and via Zoom (always available).  


Tuesday, 2 April, 3-5pm 

Wednesday, 3 April, 2-3pm 

Thursday, 4 April, 2-4pm via Zoom only 

Tuesday, 9 April, 3-5pm via Zoom only 

Wednesday, 10 April – no regular office hours 

Thursday, 11 April, 2-4pm via Zoom only 

Friday, 12 April, 11am-1pm via Zoom only 


If these times are not good for you, please email me, and we’ll figure out another time. In general, it’s helpful if you can make an appointment any time you want to see me, to avoid a long wait, but that isn’t essential. 


For majors: I strongly encourage you to meet with me to review your program and make sure you will be on track to graduate on time. These advising meetings should not take more than 20-30 minutes. Keep in mind that there are a few courses, such as WSGS 391, 398, and 399, with restricted enrollment, so you will need to apply or request permission to register for them. 


If you are planning to do an internship in summer or fall of 2024, please look at the 

WSGS Internship and Practicum page on the WSGS website. You should also contact me as soon as possible (ehemenway@luc.edu) to get started with the process of applying for and securing an internship. 


For minors: I would be happy to meet with you as well, especially if you are interested in exploring some of the WSGS courses we will be offering in the fall.   

Fall 2024 course listings (WSGS and crosslists) are posted on our website:  

I look forward to seeing many of you online or in person at some point in the next few weeks. Feel free to get in touch with any questions.   

Stay well! 

Dr. Betsy Jones Hemenway 

Director, WSGS
