Certificate in Social and Cultural Diversity

To prepare students to live in the global village and to be successful in the increasingly diverse workplace, the Department of Sociology and Anthropology offers a Certificate in Social and Cultural Diversity.

The curriculum is designed to take advantage of the core strengths of the disciplines of sociology and anthropology, and of our faculty, to offer focused study of race, class, culture, gender, and sexuality; all fundamental factors that contribute to social and cultural diversity within and between societies.
