    As the country’s workforce becomes increasingly diverse, employers are seeking individuals who have a greater degree of cultural competency and a broad understanding of diversity in the workplace.

    CCAC’s Ethnic & Diversity Studies certificate program is designed to enable individuals to explore and understand differences based on age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation, national origin or physical or mental ability. Students will be equipped with the ability to think and write critically about race, class and ethnicity in social and historical contexts.
