Why a Certificate in Women in
Development?


As demonstrated by research,
publications, conferences/seminars, and
institutional participation the field of
Women in Development (WID) continues
to grow.

Gender has proven to be a critical
variable in the analysis of development
processes at both the micro- and macro-
levels. Today, governmental and non-
governmental institutions engaged in
development are paying increasing
attention to the role of women for
reasons of equity and efficiency.

During the past two decades, WID
scholarship has advanced from a
primarily descriptive to an analytical
focus: it has undergone increasing
sophistication in terms of theory,
analysis, and application.

WID researchers at the University of
Florida have expertise in both theory and
application. They represent a broad
array of academic disciplines, including
Agronomy, Anthropology, Food &
Resource Economics, Home Economics,
Forestry, Geography, Women's Studies
and others. The WID Certificate offers
students official recognition for the study
of Women in Development in these
diverse fields.
