Fall 2023 Semester Notice!

Dear WSGS students and friends:

I’m writing today to remind you that undergraduate registration for Fall 2023 classes will begin on Monday, 17 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 hoursduring the week of 10 April (immediately following Easter break):

Tuesday, 11 April, 1:00-4:00pm via Zoom only
Wednesday, 12 April, 3:00-4:00pm
Thursday, 13 April, 11am-2pm via Zoom only
Friday, 14 April, 11am-12pm

I will still hold my regular office hours M/F 11-12 and W 3-4. 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 398, 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 2023, please look at the

WSGS Internship and Practicum page on the WSGS website.

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 2023 course listings (WSGS and crosslists) are posted on our website:


For Internships: you should contact me as soon as possible: ehemenway@luc.edu. I can get you started with the process of applying for and securing an internship.

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
