The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program is a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding and analysis of women, gender, and sexuality in history and culture. The program seeks to help students recognize and understand how their lives have been culturally constructed by notions of gender, ethnicity, sexuality and class. An added benefit of having the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Certificate is that prospective employers and graduate schools will appreciate the added dimension of inter-disciplinary work that goes beyond the basic degree requirements. The certificate is complementary to many existing undergraduate programs.
In addition, the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program seeks to redress the neglect in many disciplines of the significant contributions of women. In doing so, we hope to challenge the status quo, giving students new ways to perceive themselves, thereby empowering them to be confident, political beings.
An eighteen-hour course of study, the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Certificate can also substitute for a minor.
