Women contribute to culture and society as both participants and
creators. Fort Hays State University offers coursework from diverse
academic fields that allows for a theoretically and historically based
understanding of the aspirations, accomplishments, and rights of women
throughout history. The Women and Gender Studies Certificate program
takes the student on a journey of exploration from the Enlightenment
era through third-wave feminism. Along the way, students take their own
excursions into literature, history, sociology, leadership,
communication, nursing, justice studies, and/or psychology. All courses
are intentionally designed for males and females, alike. You are
invited to take these journeys with us!
TOTAL HOURS REQUIRED FOR CERTIFICATE: 12 Credit Hours
