University Certificate in Women, Gender and Social Justice
(20 Credits, Level 7)
The University Certificate in Women, Gender and Social Justice Programme has developed from the University Certificate in Women's Studies that served as an important route of access and progression mainly for women students from working class and disadvantaged backgrounds.
The certificate programme aims to provide the following:
- Develop students’ communication, study, writing and analytical skills, enhancing their self-esteem and intellectual confidence.
- Facilitate students to think critically about their individual experiences and their relationship to the issues and politics that affect their communities.
- Introduce students to the study of history, literature, art, film, sociology, psychology, philosophy and politics.
- Build on participants’ existing education and training to strengthen and diversify their employment opportunities.
Working closely with our community partners in Ronanstown Women's CDP, our approach to recruitment is as inclusive as possible. The Certificate Programme is open to all women who have completed their secondary level education OR who have suitable experience or educational/training qualifications. All women who display the motivation, interest and commitment to pursue this course are considered.
