The courses listed above do not exhaust all potentially relevant classes. Other classes with substantial focus and coursework dedicated to these topics, approaches, and issues that are not listed can be approved to meet the certificate requirements. Some courses (such as ENGL 415) may apply to the certificate when the topic of the particular section pertains. A course may be listed above under one particular area, but may also address another area and could be approved for that other area instead; for example, a course listed under Race, Ethnicity, and Nationality may also focus on Sex, Gender, and Sexuality and be used to fulfill that area. Language courses listed above are taught in English, but courses taught in another language may also be approved for the certificate. No more than two courses from the same department/prefix may be applied toward the completion of the certificate.
