Graduate Certificate

Inaugurated in fall 2004, the graduate certificate program enables Ph.D. students in the humanities and social sciences to receive formal certification for interdisciplinary research on women, gender, and sexuality. Students complete coursework engaging gender analysis and interdisciplinary approaches, gain rapid acquaintance with faculty and resources across departments, form an intellectual community with fellow graduate students, and participate in the Colloquium, a series of public lectures and follow-up workshops given by leading scholars. Opportunities to gain teaching experience as teaching fellows in undergraduate courses are available annually.
