Students not enrolled in a Villanova graduate degree program who are applying for the freestanding certificate must submit
- an online application form
- an official transcript of all previous college work, showing a baccalaureate degree from an accredited university
- two letters of recommendation from people in a position to evaluate the applicant’s academic ability
- a personal statement indicating interests, plans, and objectives within the field of Gender and Women’s Studies.
Graduate students already enrolled at Villanova may apply through an internal application and a review of their graduate transcripts. Up to two courses may double-count toward both a graduate degree and the GWS graduate certificate.
