The Graduate Certificate in Gender Studies provides skills for practical application of gender theories and research in the workforce to advance leadership and participation, economic empowerment, policy and planning, multimodal digital literacies, and cross-cultural communication in order to promote gender equality.

The Gender Studies certificate includes courses from both the humanities and the social sciences. The program is open to both degree‑seeking and nondegree‑seeking graduate students. Most courses are offered at times that will accommodate part‑time and working students. Students should consult with the instructor, since entry to some graduate courses is restricted by registration codes from the department.
