Certificate in Diversity Studies

Certificate in Diversity Studies

American society is becoming more culturally diverse than ever before.  Studies in diversity help us prevent difficulties born of ignorance and misunderstanding.  Knowing how to communicate and get along with people who are different from ourselves is a valuable asset for any career.   To earn the Diversity Studies Certificate, students take 12 credit hours of courses.  One course is required, Introduction to Social Inequality (SOC 1002), while the others can be chosen to focus on one of three areas of concentration, either gender, race, or cross-cultural studies.

 

 If you are considering study in diversity, you should be emotionally mature, sensitive to other people, willing to approach new ideas and stretch beyond your comfort zones. This certificate does not prepare you for a specific career. Rather, it makes you more competitive in your chosen discipline. It is especially useful for education, business, law enforcement and human social services majors, or anyone anticipating dealing with the changing demographics of our society and the workplace.

What is Diversity Studies?

American society is becoming more culturally diverse than ever before. Globalization of business is "shrinking the world" on a daily basis. Studies in diversity help us prevent difficulties born of ignorance and misunderstanding. Like knowing how to write, knowing how to communicate and get along with people who are different from ourselves is a valuable asset for any career.

If you are considering a study in diversity, you should be emotionally mature, objective and sensitive to other people. You should also be willing to try new ideas and stretch beyond your comfort zones.
