The Critical Hmong Studies Certificate program is designed for students who have a strong interest in studying Hmong history, culture, society, language, and contemporary issues. This certificate also offers a great opportunity to students who are interested in academic areas beyond their major discipline, or those who interact with Hmong communities on a professional basis. The certificate consists of 6 core credits and between 6-7 elective credits, depending on the course combination selected.
Of the minimum 15 credits required, six would need to be at the 300-400 level (including electives). Elements of the certificate would include (1) Language; (2) Hmong History, Culture, & Society; (3) Critical Race Theory (CRT); (4) Electives.
