Intercultural Training Certificate

Core/Elective Courses

Students will complete two electives courses. Many of which are part of General Education themes, or may be in the student's major.

This approach allows for the "double-dipping" of courses to count for the student's theme or minor, allowing a student to make progress on completing both requirements with the same courses.

Below is a list of approved elective courses.  We are continuing to add courses, so please check back for updates. If you have a question about a specific course you do not see listed, please contact Regina McClinton at 616-331-2715.
