Online Graduate Certificate in Diversity and Inclusion Curriculum

All courses are designed by faculty and offered online as 8-week, 3-credit courses. Courses are offered throughout the academic year and summer. Students take courses on perspectives of diversity and inclusion, and courses that draw on the broad areas of global citizenship and global engagement, diverse identities and intercultural communication, and health and culture. The certificate is designed to be completed within a year.  

Students must take 9 credit hours from the approved list of courses that relate to diversity and inclusion.  By taking departmental prefix courses students are able to take courses that align with their graduate studies, career fields and future career interests.  Other courses may be used to satisfy this requirement with permission of the certificate director.
