Arts and Social Justice Certificate Program
Undergraduate Certificates give students a grounding in a particular skill set, allowing
them to supplement their major with learning in other disciplines. Each certificate
aligns with National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) career readiness
competencies, which include Communication, Equity and Inclusion, Leadership, and Technology.
Each certificate culminates in an Applied Experience, an internship or service-learning
course that involves students in applying their learning outside the classroom.
Some certificates include WCore and Honors courses, which can meet requirements both in the certificate and in WCore or Honors. Note that certificates are designed for undergraduates enrolled in a degree program, and only students completing certificates as part of a degree are eligible for financial aid.

Double Dipping Between Certificate and Majors/Minors
“Double-dipping” here refers to (1) allowing students in a particular major or minor pursue a particular certificate and (2) allowing students who pursue a certificate alongside a major/minor to count a course toward both programs. The following guidelines relate to double-dipping between majors/minors and certificates that share courses. No other restrictions apply for programs that do not share courses with particular certificates.
Students in the following majors/minors and also concurrently pursuing the Arts and Social Justice Certificate MAY count courses towards both programs:
- Music major or minor
- Educational Studies major or minor
- Elementary Education major
- Outdoor Education & Leadership major or minor
- Special Education minor
Students in the following majors/minors and also concurrently pursuing the Arts and Social Justice Certificate MAY NOT count courses towards both programs:
- Environmental Studies major or minor
