Requirements For The Certificate
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 within the discipline. Students will complete six credit 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 18 credit hours and a 0-credit hour independent research project, distributed in the following manner:
Three Core Courses
Two courses from Category One (Category One represents broad study in multiculturalism.)
Two courses from Category Two (Category Two represents in-depth study of particular subcultures.)
These lists will be updated periodically. Other relevant courses may be substituted upon petition to and approval by the Multicultural Studies Committee.
