Diversity - Certificate

The Diversity Certificate, developed and administered in association with the Department of Multicultural Services, is available to undergraduate students in several colleges at Texas A&M University, including the College of Architecture. Drawing from existing courses, programs and associations within the university, the Diversity Certificate Program enables its students to create, synthesize and integrate academic coursework, co-curricular experience, and service learning engagement in order to demonstrate their preparedness for participation in the modern global economy.

Students who complete the certificate will be able to discuss issues such as race, ethnicity, gender, disability and socioeconomic status, and explain how individual and group behavior affects others in terms of human rights, environmental, social, and economic well-being. To complete the certificate, students must complete a one-hour directed study course in addition to 12 hours of academic coursework from their field of study.
