2019 DVPS Graduates with Dr. Jennifer Naccarelli (center)
Women & Gender Studies Department offers the Domestic Violence Prevention &
Services Concentration and Minor, which prepare students for a range of careers focused
on domestic violence advocacy and prevention. The only one of its kind available
to undergraduates in the United States, the DVPS program trains students to
become advocates for domestic violence survivors. The DVPS concentration
combines coursework with practical experience by partnering with local domestic
violence service agencies to offer concentration students the opportunity
to serve victims and survivors of domestic violence as they participate in a
ten-week summer practicum. Developed in conjunction with the
certification and training curriculum of the Delaware Coalition Against
Domestic Violence, the course work for the program is interdisciplinary in
nature and includes Women & Gender Studies, Sociology, Criminal Justice, and Human
Development and Family Studies.

in 2011 our Domestic Violence Prevention & Services Program, created with a
$187,000 3-year grant from the Verizon Foundation, is the only undergraduate
program of its kind available in the United States.
Studies at the University of Delaware has a rich heritage of teaching in the
area of gender violence. One of the earliest courses we developed in the 1970's
addressed the psychological effects of domestic violence. UD has continued to
sponsor a broad range of courses on various aspects of the subject from
criminological, sociological, human services, literary, historical and
interdisciplinary perspectives. Our faculty includes nationally recognized
scholars of gender violence.
project has national significance as our students graduate and seek jobs, and
disseminate their knowledge to service providers and domestic violence
survivors across the country. Students graduate prepared to work in the field
of violence against women, to train others and to offer valuable information
and resources to domestic violence survivors.
program brings together knowledge of best practices from our faculty, the
Delaware Coalition Against Domestic Violence, regional community service
providers, state agencies and the generous support of the Verizon Foundation to
combat the problem of violence against women.
We are therefore positioned to become a national leader in scholarship
and training in the field.
