About the Program

The academic certificate in diversity provides an interdisciplinary exploration of cultural difference. Through the varied courses that comprise the certificate, students will develop an informed perspective on critical and social matters such as equality, ethical responsibility, and social justice. The awareness and appreciation for cultural diversity will prepare students, including working professionals from a wide array of fields (education, law enforcement, government, social services, health care, etc.), with the ability to engage more consciously and productively in a variety of activities in their work, community, and family lives. The interdisciplinary certificate in cultural diversity will afford students with the opportunities to learn outside the classroom setting to include research, participation in projects, dialog at forums, and contributions to existing groups and organizations. In addition, students intending to transfer for further study can integrate the courses for the certificate toward their GEM requirements and apply what they have learned to a wide range of fields and careers in their future.
