Women's Studies, Certificate

(Code 486-601)

The Certificate in Women’s Studies is designed for students who have a strong interest in studying women through a feminist analysis but are not able to complete the requirements for a major or minor in Women’s Studies. The certificate might appeal to those students who have limited opportunity to explore academic areas beyond their major discipline.

Currently enrolled degree-seeking students in good standing in the University or University Special Students are eligible to complete a Certificate in Women’s Studies.  Note: Courses cannot be counted in both the major and the certificate program.

Students are required to take a minimum of 12 credits, including:
WMNS 200Introduction to Feminist Theories3
WMNS 301Examining Women's Studies3
The remaining six credits are to be selected from either WMNS courses or courses cross-listed with WMNS.6

Note: Though there are no prerequisites for the Certificate in Women’s Studies, there may be prerequisites for some of the courses that are a part of the Certificate.
