Program Details

Develop an advanced understanding of the root causes of gender-based violence and the skills necessary to advance the well-being, equality and human rights of those most impacted. This program provides a transdisciplinary and applied approach to human rights and an intersectional, postcolonial, feminist and anti-racist framework for understanding gender-based violence. 

You will connect with leading practitioners from around the world and complete hands-on, real-world projects with community members through independent studies, internships and the project course.

This certificate will be particularly valuable to practitioners who work in organizations supporting survivors of gender-based violence, professionals who work with victims of gender-based crimes, students graduating from relevant degree programs like public health, anthropology, sociology or psychology, and anyone interested in integrating an intersectional and social justice framework into their work.
