The Women in Leadership Certificate is an interdisciplinary program that offers an integrative approach to learning about the interconnections among gender, race, class, sexuality, and transnational issues. The program takes gender and sexuality as its critical terms of inquiry, exploring them as social constructs and analyzing their impact on culture. The Program aims to build a supportive environment for women to assist them in the development of leadership skills through a program that integrates theory and practice.
The Program and the resulting Certificate will credential students as theoretically and materially knowledgeable in Women's and Gender issues and thus qualify them for leadership positions. The Program complements the needs of professionals in fields including: Education, Law, Social Services, Cultural Anthropology, Counseling, Business, Health Services, Public Administration, Public Relations, Archaeology, Sports and Recreation, Criminal Justice, Journalism, Community Development, and Politics.
