Certificate in Women's and Gender Studies
Vicky McLean, Program Director
The certificate program in Women’s and Gender Studies seeks to provide students with knowledge of fundamental issues in sex and gender and how these are reflected in culture across time; how they shape institutions as well as personal experience; how they interact with issues such as ethnicity, race, and socioeconomic class; how new ways of thinking about gender challenge the processes by which knowledge about human beings and our behavior is acquired, interpreted, and transmitted; and how to do research within the field and apply this knowledge to one’s personal and professional life.
