A student can take no more than two courses (6 hours) from one department for credit towards the certificate.
Courses will be assessed for suitability each time offered, due to changing content and different instructors.
After completing at least two courses in the certificate program, a student may propose an independent study with an appropriate faculty member in any department who agrees to supervise the student’s work for three credit-hours. A student seeking to pursue a directed project needs to submit a proposal, countersigned by the supervising faculty member, describing the project in sufficient detail to permit confirmation that graduate level inquiry will be pursued.
Minimum of 3.0 in each course.
