The Multicultural Literature Certificate offers students the opportunity to develop cultural competencies that are urgently needed in the twenty-first century workplace and to prepare for graduate study. This certificate provides an option for students who wish to pursue this type of education through sustained study and analysis of literary texts. Students will build their knowledge of cultural diversity by taking courses focused on multi-ethnic American literature and world literatures written in English or read in translation. Courses with a special focus on amplifying the voices of women writers, LGBTQ+ writers, and other marginalized literary artists, including filmmakers, can also be used to fulfill the certificate requirements.
