The graduate certificate provides an interdisciplinary focus on gender and sexuality issues to enrich a student’s disciplinary or professional training. The program may be completed in one year or two.
Through a challenging, 12-credit-hour program of study, students think and learn about gender in a systematic and integrated way using a variety of methodological approaches. Electives that qualify for certificate credit include courses in feminist theory and ethics, law, health, public policy and the intersections of race, gender and class.
Students enrolled in master’s and PhD programs at GW and qualified non-degree students who hold at least a bachelor's degree may apply.
