Researching Violence against Women and Girls (Online course)
GWI developed an online course for the Masters in Public Health program entitled “Researching Violence against Women and Girls.” The 2-credit course examines the intersection of violence against women and girls (VAWG) and public health, showing the significant impact that violence has on the health of survivors, survivors’ children, and communities. The course, offered annually, offers expertise from several instructors including Dr. Mary Ellsberg, GWI founder and Executive Director, and Dr. Manuel Contreras, GWI Director of Research.
Practicum in Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies
Each spring, the Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies program offers a nationally recognized program of practical experience in advocacy, policy and community organizations working on women's and gender issues for graduate and select undergraduate students. GWI is leading this course, taught by GWI Policy and Outreach Director, Janine Moussa. Graduate students may take the course for 3 or 6 credits; substantial additional research and writing a case study is required for 6 credits (WSTU 6283). Open to undergraduates by request and to students outside the WGSS program upon approval of their departments. Placement arrangements must be made the semester prior to registration. The weekly seminar will take place Tuesdays, 6:10pm-8:00pm. Registration is now open.
