Race, Ethnicity, and Gender Politics - Certificate
The Certificate in Race, Ethnicity, and Gender Politics is a means of enhancing undergraduate education through a focused program of courses and program participation. Administered by the Department of Political Science, the program is open to all Texas A&M University undergraduates, regardless of major. The program provides a valuable background for post-graduate studies in law, social science, history, public policy, or for a fulfilling career that builds on students' analytical and expressive skills.
The program requires 18 hours of coursework and program participation. Students are encouraged to begin planning as freshmen to avoid the addition of extra hours to the degree plan. Certificate requirements are specified in a current brochure available in the Department of Political Science’s Undergraduate Programs Office, Allen Building, room 2024.
Successful completion of the program will be indicated on the student’s transcript. Each student will receive a program certificate upon graduation from Texas A&M.
