EGS Certificate Application

Siena Heights University will offer three new certificate programs that will help people understand and work with marginalized and disenfranchised peoples and contribute to meaningful change within society.

There are three different certificate options, and each certificate contains three courses for a total of nine credit hours. They are:

  • Ethnic and Gender Studies
  • Race and Ethnicity Studies
  • Gender and Sexuality Studies

There will be options for completing the certificates fully online as well as on the main Adrian campus. These programs are open to current or former students at other institutions, and “really anyone who is interested in this field,” Barst said.

The first courses will begin in January 2021. Cost for a non-degree seeking student is $535 per credit hour plus fees.

For more information about the Ethnic and Gender Studies Institute’s certificate programs for non-degree seeking students, please contact Barst at or complete the application form at right.
