Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs


Applicants seeking admission to the Graduate Diploma in Gender and Women’s Studies must meet the requirements for graduate admission to AUC and must meet the University’s language requirements. Special consideration may be given for professional experience.

Course Requirements

Six courses (18 credit hours) are required for the Diploma.  All students must take the program’s  two signature courses in their first year. In addition, students select 4 electives at the 500 level across the humanities and social sciences from a selected list. Of these four courses, one 400 level course may be considered for credit. A maximum of one course may be taken from other related areas at the 500 level with the approval of the IGWS Graduate Advisory Committee.


The diploma option allows students to pursue a disciplinary MA at AUC and at the same time acquire gender studies qualifications.
