Welcome!

The Gender and Women’s Studies Program is excited to now offer a Graduate Certificate (9 hours) in addition to our existing Minor (18 hours) and Undergraduate Certificate (9 hours). Our growing class listing offers an exciting interdisciplinary and transnational study for students in all majors interested in putting an end to oppression and injustice in all its forms. (Please visit our FAQs for more)

Through this coursework, students develop cross-disciplinary communication and critical analysis skills necessary to compete nationally and internationally in their chosen careers. The program’s emphasis on ways in which individuals find themselves both in and outside of socially constructed gender roles - connected to family, work, nationality, and power - arms students with a greater understanding of increasingly significant topics pervasive globally and throughout industries and careers.

In taking courses with 50% or more Gender and Women’s Studies content, students may choose from a diverse list of classes from departments throughout the University. Our official course offerings continue to grow, so check back to tailor your electives towards a G&WMST Certificate or Minor. Be part of the solution.

“Gender equality is more than a goal in itself, it is a precondition for meeting the challenge of reducing poverty, promoting sustainable development, and building good governance.”

~Kofi Annan
