Institute for Women’s Leadership Scholars Certificate Program

Douglass College is one of six members of the Institute for Women's Leadership (IWL), a consortium located on the Douglass campus. The IWL Leadership Scholars Certificate Program, offered through the Department of Women's and Gender Studies, is a two-year interdisciplinary program in women's leadership and social change that prepares undergraduate students to be informed, innovative, and socially responsible leaders. Students in the program select a women's policy area in which to concentrate. These include art/media/literature, education, health, human rights, law, politics, and work, as well as a general leadership area. Students affiliate with the IWL for four terms and are required to take 18 credits of course work. This includes a two-term practicum that consists of an internship and a social action project. Students choose from a wide range of courses to fulfill the other certificate requirements. This selective program requires an application; contact the IWL for further information.
