Women’s and Gender Studies Certificate

The basic program consists of an interdisciplinary sequence of courses leading to a Certificate in Women’s and Gender Studies and a special notation on the transcript. Students enrolled in the certificate program are required to complete 12 credits of coursework in women’s and gender studies, including WOMGENDR 1130, and one 3000 or 4000 level course in women’s and gender studies that may include the internship or research project.
