The IECMH certificate program follows a cohort model. Students are expected to progress through the program without interruption over the course of study. Class schedules and course experiences are designed to accommodate demands of working professionals, residents outside of the metropolitan area, and already matriculated graduate students. Courses are scheduled in a series of day-long sessions each month during the fall, spring, and summer sessions.
The College of Education and Human Development is committed to every course contributing to our understanding of diversity, including but not limited to age, creed, disability, ethnicity, gender, global perspectives, international background, learning differences, marital status, multicultural perspectives, national origin, public assistance status, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, and veteran status.
