GS classes promote the exchange of knowledge among people of different genders, classes, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and cultural conditions. The graduate certificate in Gender Studies is designed for students who wish to receive post-baccalaureate training. The certificate is available to students with Bachelor’s degrees and students enrolled in graduate degree programs. A student need not be enrolled in a degree program to earn the GS graduate certificate.
