NEW Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Ethnic Studies

Earn a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Ethnic Studies by completing 12 units of coursework. You will gain specialization in communities of color, inequality, equity, and empowerment for your professional field.

Take one core course, two additional courses of your choosing, and enroll in a culminating experience to earn your certificate. Your newly earned specialty may enhance your professional career in education, public health, social work, nursing, non-profit management, and business.

Students who are currently enrolled in an SF State MA program may find application instructions here.

Students who are matriculated into a graduate program within the College of Ethnic Studies do not need to apply for the certificate and can directly file for the certificate degree with the Division of Graduate Studies once the required coursework has been completed.

Please apply to the Post-Baccalaureate Program via Cal State Apply​ if you are not matriculated in an SF State graduate program.

Application deadline for Fall 2018 admission is April 1, 2018.

See the SFSU Bulletin for more details.
