For purposes of meeting certificate requirements, all nine-credit general education (foundation) courses will count as six credits towards the certificate.
Graduating with a certificate: except where otherwise stated, a minimum cumulative grade point average of 4.00 is required to satisfy certificate requirements. Students must also submit application to graduate from a certificate program. Applications should be obtained from and filed with the unit administering the certificate program. Transcript notation that the requirements for a certificate have been completed will be made once the Registrar’s Office has received notice from the unit administering the program. Certificates will not be conferred until candidates have successfully completed an undergraduate degree program if they are simultaneously enrolled in a degree and a certificate program. The Faculty does not award certificates retroactively. Refer to the Academic Standards section for details of the undergraduate certificate minimum standards.
Core courses: the core courses are offered by the Gender and Women’s Studies program and, like the required courses, have the second digit five (5) in the course number, e.g. WMST 2500 6.00.
Non-core courses (courses offered by other teaching units): may be acceptable for program credit or cross-listed with the Gender and Women’s Studies program. These courses will count towards the certificate requirements in women’s studies. Please consult the School of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s Studies website for course listings.
