Note: These six courses are taken with a cohort of educators over a two-year period (no summer courses).

This sequence of courses are the required program courses for the MA in Education, Holistic and Integrative Education. The courses are offered as a two-year sequence taken with a cohort of educators. The sequence provides a strong basis for the student to implement a holistic and integrative approach to education in their professional context. This certificate would be for students that either already have a MA in education or do not wish to complete the requirements for the MA program (e.g., 24 additional units), but are interested in implementing a holistic and integrative approach to education. The admission requirement of an interview helps insure that the potential student understands the program and is appropriate for entering the certificate program.
