Overview

The Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory (Certificate NDP) at University of Arizona will deepen student strengths in interdisciplinary and conceptually rigorous forms of research.

The SCCT Certificate is intended for and exclusively open to University of Arizona graduate students enrolled in MA, MFA, JD, MBA, and other non-Ph.D. programs. (PhD students should enroll in the SCCT Minor.) 

This is a 9-credit certificate with one required course and two electives. The required course is SCCT 500 (Introduction to Social, Cultural and Critical Theory), offered each year in the fall semester.

Department

The Graduate College sponsors several Graduate Interdisciplinary Programs (GIDPs) in addition to the many interdisciplinary possibilities available through regular graduate degree programs. GIDPs transcend departmental boundaries by facilitating cutting edge teaching and research at the nexus of traditional disciplines.
