Cultural Studies in Education Graduate Certificate

The 15-hour graduate certificate in cultural studies in education is intended for currently admitted graduate students seeking to develop skills necessary when working with diverse populations, especially targeted, minority populations. Students currently enrolled in many of the graduate programs on our campus are seeking to understand their different fields of study through a cultural studies lens. A certificate in cultural studies in education will offer students a way to bundle the courses they are already taking so that they can present to future employers their skills in a way that is easily recognized. This certificate will also further prepare students to be able to apply a cultural studies focus to the work they do in their various fields of study. Certificate candidates must currently be admitted to a graduate program at the university or hold a terminal degree and be admitted to the graduate school in the certificate. All 15 hours of coursework must be completed at the University of Tennessee within five years of applying for a certificate. A 3.5 GPA must be earned in all certificate courses. All courses must be selected from the list below.
