Post Baccalaureate Certificate in Ethnic Studies

 

Earn a Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Ethnic Studies by completing 12 units of coursework.

SF State is home to the first College of Ethnic Studies in the world. This Fall 2020 all Ethnic Studies courses will be offered online. The format for Spring 2021 courses has not yet been determined.

By enrolling in the Ethnic Studies Post-Baccalaureate Certificate program you can gain the historical background and critical skills necessary to engage in the process of making your workplace more equitable and anti-racist. Coursework and a culminating experience project will provide a foundation in understanding the contemporary realities of communities of color, the origins of inequality, the struggles for equity, and solidify a commitment to social justice that you can take to your professional field.
