Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Certificate
Also available via Ecampus.
The Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies undergraduate certificate is designed to facilitate the broad interdisciplinary study of gender and women’s issues. It emphasizes the diversity of women’s experience through a focus on disciplinary-based knowledge about women’s lives and relationships in the many schools/departments where courses on gender are taught.
While core course work taught by the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program is required, students are expected to take the bulk of their elective course work from approved Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program classes offered throughout the different academic units on campus. A total of 27 credits is required for the certificate, with at least 12 of these credits at the upper-division level.
All required course work must be taken on campus and no more than 3 credits of online elective course work can be used toward the on-campus certificate.

Baccalaureate Core Course (BCC)
The remaining 17 credits can be taken from elective courses offered by the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program and from approved program courses offered in any school/department at OSU. However, at least 12 of these 17 credits must consist of approved program courses. An approved program course is one that has a focus on gender and/or women’s issues, is taught in a unit other than the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program, and has been approved as fulfilling the requirements of a Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies Program course. See the electives for the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies major.
