Certificate in Women's and Gender Studies
The Women’s & Gender Studies Certificate equips you with a professional credential for teaching careers at all levels in the areas of women’s, feminist, masculinity, and queer studies.
This interdisciplinary course of study analyzes women’s and gender studies through the lens of intersectionality—including race, class, sexuality, and location—providing a framework for understanding gender theory, research, and practice as well as the social dimension of gender with regard to femininities and masculinities. You will collaborate with faculty-scholars from an array of disciplines, including women’s studies, behavioral science, management, education, and more. In addition to preparing you for a teaching career, this certificate can also be applied to careers in health services, business, public policy, government, and nonprofit organizations.
