The Social Diversity Certificate is a foundation for understanding the forms, consequences, and impact of diversity in modern society. The certificate facilitates awareness of how cultures vary and shape the human experience. Coursework also evaluates the social benefits of diversity and the individual, interactional, and structural factors that link it to enduring forms of social inequality. This certificate is available to all students, regardless of major. Sociology courses taken to receive this certificate will also count toward the Sociology major or minor.
