Women’s and Gender Studies, Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees & Certificates

The Women’s and Gender Studies (WGS) Certificate Program is designed to engage students in an interdisciplinary field of study which analyzes the phenomenon of gender through a lens of intersectionality, including race, class, sexuality, and location. The focus on interdisciplinary studies also allows students to study the significance of gender theory, research, and practice, while understanding “gender” as a social construction referring to femininities and masculinities.

Admission requirements are detailed in the Admission  section of the Bulletin.
