Graduate Certificate in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies

The certificate is open to all students already enrolled in a graduate program at Yale; it may be of particular interest for students who do not have the prerequisites to apply to the combined Ph.D. and/or for students whose dissertations will not substantively focus on gender or sexuality. Students are encouraged to register for the certificate by meeting with the WGSS director of graduate studies (DGS) during their first year.

Students who wish to receive the certificate must complete WGSS 600, Introduction to Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies; WGSS 900, Colloquium and Working Group; and two WGSS-numbered or substantively themed electives. Certificate students should also present a paper at the Colloquium and Working Group and fulfill a teaching requirement. Students who fulfill these expectations will receive a letter from the DGS awarding them the certificate.
