Curriculum Code #5120

Effective May 2017

Division Social Sciences and Human Services

This certificate  provides students a unique  background on women, sex and gender.   The interdisciplinary curriculum  provides students  the opportunity to  study women and gender in such areas as Psychology, Sociology, Literature, and History. The study of women, gender, and sexuality studies develops a student’s critical thinking, research, and analysis by exploring divergent viewpoints. Students also develop oral/written communication, presentation and problem solving skills and learn to appreciate a pluralistic world. By learning about the biases often found in society's most powerful institutions, women's and gender studies prepares students  to work in advocacy or social services-related positions, community development, business, and government. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College's University Partnership.
