Gender and Women's Studies is an interdisciplinary certificate in which students explore gender and gender relations through the varied lenses of art, literature, history, psychology and sociology. While examining themes related to gender in cultural, historical, social, national and global contexts, students will broaden their appreciation and knowledge of gender identities and equality. Topics covered include new themes in gender research and women's studies, visual representations of the sexes, language use by the sexes, power dynamics, gender identities, women's movement politics and generational changes. By understanding diverse life experiences, students not only gain perspectives relevant to their personal lives but also develop critical and employer-sought skills they can utilize in the 21st century workforce.
Students earning the Gender and Women's Studies Certificate can attend full or part time.
