Graduate

Bowling Green State University offers a Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies. Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies is an interdisciplinary field offering a unified approach to the study of fundamental issues in sex and gender. It examines how these concepts have been reflected in culture across time; how they shape institutions as well as personal experience; how they interact with issues such as race, ethnicity and socioeconomic class; and how new ways of thinking about gender challenge the processes by which knowledge about human beings and our behavior is acquired, interpreted, and transmitted.

The Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies brings together scholars and graduate students across the University to actively engage in interdisciplinary feminist scholarship. Such a program offers the possibility of cross-disciplinary influence and collaboration; extra-departmental collegiality and support; and professional certification in the rich field of study that is contemporary Women's Studies.
