Two Graduate Certificates Offered in the Center

The Center for Gender, Sexualities, and Women’s Studies Research congratulates four graduate students who earned their certificate in Women’s Studies: Michelle Barboza, who recently earned her MS in Geology; Deepthi Siriwardena, currently a PhD student in the Department of English; Alexandra Cenatus, who earned her MA in Latin American Studies; Laura Winn, who is a PhD student in Art History.

Students pursuing graduate work in the Center for Women’s Studies and Gender Research will become acquainted with various feminist
(and other appropriate) theoretical approaches and methodologies for examining the role of gender in cultural systems. Gender will be understood in intersection with other categories of difference, including race, ethnicity, social class, sexuality, religion, physical ability, age, and nationality.

The Women’s Studies Certificate (WST) is designed for graduate students from any discipline who wish to focus on interdisciplinary issues related to feminist theory and practice.

The Gender and Development (GAD) certificate is designed for graduate students from any discipline who wish to focus on issues related to gender and development.

All graduate students in an MA or Ph.D. program from all colleges at UF are eligible to enroll in either certificate program offered in the Center.

Applications for the certificate must be submitted to the Center’s Graduate Coordinator, Dr. Kendal Broad.
