Certificate in Diversity and Identity in the U.S.
The program in Multicultural Studies offers a Certificate in Diversity and Identity in the U.S., which provides students from all academic backgrounds the opportunity to identify multicultural studies as a particular area of interest. Students will gain a solid foundation in issues of diversity and identity across the many subcultures of the United States as well as their particular area of interest with the discipline.
Students will complete six credits hours of coursework that broadly explores multicultural issues and six credit hours of courses that address more specific topics in the field. Finally, students will present a self-selected project to the Multicultural Studies Committee. Classes taken as part of a student's undergraduate major may be used toward the certificate.
Completion of the Certificate requires 21 credit hours, which include a 3-credit hour independent research project. For full information, review the program guidelines.
