Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies Certificate


The Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies program is an interdisciplinary academic program focusing on gender, sexuality, and women. Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies (GSWS) courses and cross-listed courses in various departments across the university provide opportunities for all students to broaden their understandings of the changing role of gender in the United States and globally. Students who want to explore the intersection of gender with race, class, ethnicity, nation, religion, ability, age, sex and sexuality will find courses of interest, as will students who want to know more about the role of women in history, in literature and the arts, in media and science. Students who plan careers in medicine, the creative arts, social work, education, counseling, law, therapy, academia, and business find that this program’s courses enhance their professional activities. Still others report that the confidence and insight that they acquire in such courses enriches their lives regardless of their particular career goals.
