Certificate requirements include both political science and women’s studies courses, in addition to electives drawn from departments across campus.

This Certificate in Women's Leadership at Portland State University was crafted with two main goals in mind: first, to guide students through a curriculum on leadership that is appropriate for all majors and accessible for those students that have never thought of themselves as leaders before.


Employers are always looking for evidence of leadership skills, so having this on your resume will be a positive attribute for any field. The knowledge and skills you gain from this certificate are the most valuable thing about it; after getting this certificate you will both understand more about women in leadership and have a new skillset to draw upon if you choose to go for a leadership position.
