This independent interdisciplinary program is designed to broaden and enrich disciplinary scholarship for students enrolled in a master’s or doctoral degree granting program.  The purpose of the certificate is to enable students interested in feminist scholarship to pursue a coherent, integrated curriculum in the field and to credential them as knowledgeable in Feminist Studies, thus qualifying them for positions requiring such expertise.  Students work closely with core faculty and associated faculty to develop an intersectional analysis of their research into a final research project.  Students completing the certificate will have the opportunity to bring a feminist perspective to bear on the practices and ideas of their own discipline, thereby increasing the body of feminist theory and research. 

The curriculum is designed to ground students in the evolving tradition of feminist scholarship while supporting them as they utilize a feminist perspective within their own fields of study.  The certificate emphasizes the development of feminist theory, research and analytical skills from an integrative and intersectional perspective, meaning by this the interaction of race, class, gender and sexuality in a national and/or global perspective.  Students are required to complete a set of five requirements
