Diversity - Certificate

The College of Geosciences, in collaboration with the Department of Multicultural Services, offers a Diversity Certificate program for Geosciences majors. The goal of the program is two-fold:

  1. to offer Geosciences students an opportunity to synthesize and integrate academic coursework with co-curricular and service learning experiences to demonstrate their preparedness to participate successfully in contemporary, highly diverse global societies; and
  2. to promote diversity, multiculturalism, and internationalism in the College of Geosciences.

Certificate requirements include nine semester hours of diversity-related courses, at least one of which must be from the College of Geosciences, and completion of a special section of GEOSĀ 484 to fulfill the co-curricular, service learning and capstone component of the certificate. Students are encouraged to build the coursework into their degree plans as much as possible through careful planning. Information on the program is available from the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, Room 202 Eller O&M Building and departmental academic advisors.
