MACIE + Certificate Tracks

Optional Graduate Certificate Track

MACIE students may design their programs around the completion of an additional graduate certificate. Students on such tracks complete the Core Educational Component, Language Acquisition Component, Research and Inquiry Component, Cross-Cultural/ International Internship, and Master's Capstone Component as described with the Course of Study, and then fulfill their Interdisciplinary Cognate Component by taking courses that will also count toward the completion of an additional graduate certificate. Graduate certificate options include:

TESOL Graduate Certificate:

BGSU offers a 12-credit TESOL Certificate, which MACIE students can earn by taking one additional TESOL class. For more information, see the TESOL Certificate Program page. 

Women's Studies Graduate Certificate:

BGSU  offers a 16-credit Women's Studies Certificate, which MACIE students can earn by taking two additional courses and doing a capstone project or thesis that relates to women's studies. For more information, see the Women's Studies Graduate Certificate page.

Ethnic Studies Graduate Certificate:

BGSU  offers a 15-credit Ethnic Studies Certificate, which MACIE students can earn by taking two additional courses in ethnic studies or a related field. For more information, see the Ethnic Studies Graduate Certificate page. 

Education Certificate Cognates:

New to the program! Students may now elect particular cognate pathways within the College of Education and Human Development resulting in the completion of a graduate-level certificate program in a particular area such as special education or assistive technology. Please contact Dr. Bruce Collet, MACIE Program Coordinator, for more information.

A Note on Course Selection:

Because cognates take students outside of the College of Education & Human Development, course changes are out of the control of MACIE faculty. Students should check the course listings on-line for the most up to date list of course names and schedules. Some departments utilize the same course number (e.g. 6800) for several different topics. Some courses are offered once per semester, per year, or on demand.  Check with department for planned offering.
