The Department of Afroamerican and African Studies offers two certificates:
- African Studies Certificate (code 01973)
- African American and Diasporic Studies Certificate (code 01974)
Students must apply to Rackham or a non-Rackham Graduate School for the certificate program. Students who are already enrolled in a Rackham or non-Rackham degree program must complete at least one term before applying to the certificate program. Students who are double-counting credits, Rackham requires a Dual/Joint Degree Election Form to be completed, approved by both program departments (i.e., African Studies Certificate and Natural Resources & Environment) and returned to Rackham before applications for graduation can be processed.
