⇲ Women's Studies Certificate
From uncovering social wrongs to demanding legal and political rights, Women's Studies has transformed scholarship on the role of women and gender in society. Design your interdisciplinary program to critically engage the interconnections of gender, race, culture, and sexuality with a graduate certificate in Women's Studies from Howard University. Our graduate certificate program has the distinct advantage of centering the lives, contributions, and agency of women of diverse cultures. We are one of the select few Women's Studies programs in the country that offers the unique opportunity for graduate-level research with a specialization in Black Women's Studies and the study of women of color, broadly or narrowly defined according to a student's interest. The 15-credit graduate certificate provides a credential for teaching or research positions requiring expertise in the areas of Women's and Gender Studies, Africana Womanism, Intersectional Feminist Studies, or LGBT+ Studies, and Non-Aligned Gender Perspectives, or for careers related to advocacy for women (legal and social services), women's health and well being, counseling, teaching, international development, public policy, media studies, cultural studies, public history, and journalism.
