Health care providers are deeply concerned about the quality of interaction between care providers and clients of diverse cultural backgrounds. This graduate certificate program is designed to provide practitioners with the tools they need to be effective in this environment. Based on ethnographic methods used by social scientists, the certificate provides training in both theory and practice to enhance the quality of intercultural communications and health care delivery.
Degree-seeking graduate students who hold Regular admission status may be admitted to the certificate program. Credits earned for the certificate may be applied toward a graduate degree as approved by the student’s graduate program director and in keeping with the policies of the College of Graduate Studies. Alternatively, the applicant must meet the graduate certificate admission requirements detailed in the Admissions section of this Catalog. With program permission, non-degree graduate students may enroll in the courses noted below, but non-degree graduate students cannot earn a University graduate certificate.
