Women’s Studies Graduate Catalog Page 

Women’s Studies  offers a graduate certificate for students in M.A., M.S., Ph.D and professional programs at Kansas State. It consists of 12 hours of graduate level courses in women’s studies and/or gender studies. One core course–Women’s Studies 810, Gender: Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Feminist Thought and Practice–is required. For students’ enrolling after May 1, 2011, three other courses at the 600 level and above can be chosen from an approved list of electives from a variety of disciplines. (If students began their graduate certificate before this time, they will be able to have 500-level courses count for their certificate.) Interested students should apply online through the Graduate School. In the online application, graduate students should identify their goals, their gender focus, and how a certificate will enhance their program of study. If students are enrolled in a degree-granting program at KSU, their major professor should send a short letter to the Coordinator of the Graduate Certificate Program in Women’s Studies and indicate her/his support of students’ engagement in Women’s Studies classes. After acceptance, students will meet with Women’s Studies Coordinator of the Graduate Certificate Program and identify those courses most congruent with their chosen program of study.
