Gender Studies draws on the rich body of interdisciplinary scholarship to investigate emerging theories and research on women, men, and gender fluidity as they intersect with race, class, culture, sex, policy, institutions, and human interactions. Faculty are dedicated to the promotion of the exchange of knowledge among people of different genders, classes, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and cultural conditions. The certificate is available as a standalone program or is also available in the Online Bachelor of Liberal Studies.
