Graduate Certificate in Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

The graduate certificate in women’s, gender, and sexuality studies is offered to students currently enrolled in M.A. and Ph.D. degree programs at GW other than women's studies and to qualified non-degree students who have at least a bachelor's degree. The program provides students with an opportunity to think and learn about gender in a systematic and integrated manner from a variety of methodological approaches. The certificate is designed to provide an interdisciplinary course of study on women and gender to enrich a student's disciplinary or professional training.
