The Graduate Certificate in Gender and Sexuality Studies offers an advanced program of study grounded in contemporary issues and current scholarship. The program can be completed on its own or combined with a Master of Arts in English. The program is designed to serve both students preparing for further graduate study and working professionals. It is especially useful for teachers, who will gain strategies for navigating the gendered terrain of the classroom.
For students in the Master of Arts in English, five courses are required: two Women and Gender Studies (WGS) courses and three ENGL classes in your graduate program that have an approved gender designation. Students will choose TWO of the following WGS courses:
- WGS500: Gender, Culture, and Society
- WGS510: Feminist Theories
- WGS520: Gender Equity in the Classroom
In order to add the Gender Certificate to your program of study, pick up an Application to “Add/Remove Graduate Certificate Endorsement” at the Records and Registration office in Green Hall and notify your graduate advisor of your intention to complete the certificate.
