This certificate is designed for students interested in examining issues of historical and contemporary gender inequality, both within the U.S. and abroad. Students will be able to critically assess the ways that gender has been used to constrain people’s opportunities as well as ways that it has been harnessed as a tool for change. The certificate will help students function as informed citizens and successful professionals in the 21st century. Course material will increase students’ sensitivity and effectiveness in a variety of interpersonal and professional settings. The certificate is particularly appropriate for students preparing for or currently working in a variety of disciplines or careers in business, communications, the arts, education, health, humanities, social sciences, and human services.

To pursue the certificate, students must be admitted to the university but need not be enrolled in a degree program.
