The Women’s Studies in Religion certificate program is designed so it is possible to complete the requirements in a single year; however, students are welcome to take more time to finish.
Students must be enrolled at the GTU or a member school in order to start the certificate program, but may complete the requirements after they graduate.
"One of the great benefits of this certificate program is that I was able to look through a feminist lens in every course I took. This enriched my learning in powerful ways. I also tried to contribute to class discussions by foregrounding women's issues and concerns, which ultimately have a profound impact on all of us. Every time I look at my WSR Certificate I feel a sense of passion to continue the good work of those who came before me seeking 'justice for all.'”
