Multicultural Literature Certificate

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Degrees and Programs

The English Post-Graduate Certificate is available for those who are not currently pursuing a Master’s degree but would like recognition of their accomplishment. Thus, it provides a “goal” for students who seek additional credentials (such as endorsement or coursework to support job applications for faculty development) but already have a Master’s degree or do not plan to pursue one at this time.

Our primary goal in this certificate program is to produce graduates qualified (as appropriate) with credentials to instruct college-level courses in literature and/or preparation to gain admission to terminal degree programs in English or related fields. In order to do so, graduates in Multicultural Literature must develop the following knowledge, skills, and dispositions:

  1. Know and appreciate the diversity of voices in both Anglo-American and global literature, as well as be able to apply classical and contemporary critical approaches to illuminate texts for colleagues and students
  2. Demonstrate strong research, writing, and presentation skills through the production of works suitable for presentation and publication.
