Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies

All graduate students in an M.A. or Ph.D. program at FIU are eligible to apply to the Graduate Certificate in Women's Studies program. The Center for Women’s and Gender Studies encourages graduate students from all colleges to participate.

Undergraduate students in their senior year may take graduate-level courses to complete their graduate certificate as a post-baccalaureate certificate.

Students with a baccalaureate degree from an accredited university may enroll as a non-degree-seeking student and complete the graduate certificate.

Students in the graduate certificate program may take up to three hours of approved independent study work (WST 5905) and/or may count up to three Master's-level or Ph.D. research hours in their major department if the focus of dissertation encompasses topics and scholarship in Women's and Gender Studies. Please see Women's and Gender Studies director for approval.
