The Undergraduate Certificate in Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies is comparable to achieving a minor in a subject. What makes the Undergraduate WGSS Certificate unique is that it is an interdisciplinary program. Students receive credit for specific courses in Anthropology, English, Criminal Justice, Communication, History, Languages and Linguistics, Literature, Nursing, Political Science, Sociology, and of course, Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies.
The underlying goal of the Undergraduate WGSS Certificate is to understand the broad range of women’s experiences that reflect class, race, ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, age, and the interconnections that shape these experiences in specific ways.
The Undergraduate Certificate in Women, Gender & Sexuality Studies curriculum prepares students to think critically about the political, social, economic, and historical forces that shape women’s lives, along with women’s responses through activism and advocacy.
