Program Overview

The undergraduate certificate in women’s and gender studies (WGS) offers students an opportunity to engage in a rich academic program that addresses gender and its intersection with race, sexuality, class, and other aspects of diversity. The certificate is comparable to a minor in that it requires about the same number of credit hours. The advantage of the certificate is that it is interdisciplinary, allowing students to study issues relating to gender from a variety of perspectives. As such, it provides an excellent complement to the wide variety of undergraduate majors available at Ohio University.
