Graduate Certificate in Multicultural Education


The Graduate Certificate in Multicultural Education (GCME) targets full- or part-time graduate students who seek academic preparation in multicultural education in order to build/improve their capacity for working well/effectively with diverse populations. Master's and doctoral students enrolled in various disciplines, as well as current administrative professionals who already possess an undergraduate degree and have 1-2 years' full-time work experience, will particularly benefit from this certificate. Though the graduate certificate in ME targets full- or part-time graduate students who have completed an undergraduate teacher education licensure program, and/or an alternative route to licensure program, students need not be licensed to take the certificate, but should be aware that this is not a licensure program.
