The Gender Studies Certificate Program is an interdisciplinary program that encourages students to explore gender from multiple perspectives, providing them with knowledge and understanding of gender as it functions in our diverse and interconnected world.

The program is designed to support those students pursuing careers in human resources, social work, law, public policy, and journalism. In today's economically challenging times, concentrated courses in Gender Studies may be the edge a job candidate needs to land a job; it is another way for students to market themselves. In addition, the certificate program may help students intending to transfer to a 4-year institution, as admissions have become increasingly competitive. 

All transferability of classes to four-year institutions is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Students should contact an advisor at the college to which they intend to transfer. Please visit the College Transfer Center for more information.
