The graduate certificate in women and gender studies offers a graduate-level education in the systematic approach to the study of gender from an interdisciplinary perspective. It provides an intellectual context in which students study feminist theory and methodology at an advanced level. At the same time, the certificate program bridges the gap between discipline-centered studies and the interdisciplinary foundations of women and gender studies, thereby enhancing the student’s ability to conduct gender-based research.
Students wishing to take part in the women and gender studies certificate program must be currently enrolled in a graduate disciplinary degree or professional degree program at CU-Boulder. Requirements for the certificate are 9 credit hours of course work in women and gender studies and one additional course equaling 3 credit hours to be approved by the women and gender studies graduate advisor, for a total of 12 credit hours.
