Students pursuing a gender-based violence certificate may find it valuable for pursuing careers as victim advocates, policy analysts, Title IX coordinators, university investigators, or shelter workers. It may also inspire and position students competitively for future graduate work. Those in human resources, law, counseling, medicine (nurses, doctors, physical therapists, dentists) all engage with victim/survivors and could benefit from a certificate in gender-based violence.
