International Education - Certificate

The College of Education and Human Development International Education and Graduate Certificate Program consist of coursework and field experiences that will give graduate students an international perspective on educational issues. The certificate program will give students an interdisciplinary basis from which to interpret and analyze global socioeconomic and cultural influences that shape educational systems. To meet the needs of an increasingly demographically-diverse society, U.S. educators and administrators must increase their knowledge about the various cultures that are part of our country. In addition, educators and administrators who work and live abroad need exposure to international theories and experiences in order to prepare them for leadership positions abroad.
