Certificate in Ethnic Studies
Units required for Certificate: 12
The certificate in Ethnic Studies is designed to give students theoretical, foundational, historical, and pedagogical knowledge to effectively teach Ethnic Studies. Moreover, the certificate program will provide students with an understanding of the research that supports the effectiveness of an Ethnic Studies class and will focus on several groups (African-Americans; Asian-Americans, Chicano/s; Native Americans) that have historically underachieved in US schools.
In order to earn a Certificate in Ethnic Studies, a student must be admitted into the MA in Multicultural Education program.
Students will be allowed to obtain the certificate without completing the MA program.
