Certificate in Chicano/Latino Studies

A certificate in Chicano/Latino Studies is a valuable asset for individuals preparing to work in fields and professions that place a premium on effectively reaching out to Latino/a individuals and communities, especially, but not limited to, health, education, business (marketing, human resources), counseling, legal, and public service professions.

At Portland State University, a certificate is an intermediary credential-more than a minor, but less than a major-that students obtain to enrich or add value to their selected major.

A balanced interdisciplinary program of social science, humanities, and Spanish-language requirements makes the Chicano/Latino Studies certificate one of the most useful supplements to a PSU major. The certificate requires 36 credits.
