Brown University has approved four new specialization certificates (gender and sexuality studies, spatial analysis, public humanities and collaborative humanities) for doctoral students to formally recognize expertise in areas outside their degree program. Brown readily admits the certificates are “deliberately broad” given its small student body size and, while each certificate has its own unique requirements, they appear to take about a semester or so to complete.
Even if you’re not interested in Brown, you may want to research the benefit of a similar specialization certificate for your needs and consider adding that to your criteria list when exploring your doctoral program options.
Best of luck with your applications!
