Digital & Transdisciplinary Literacies Graduate Certificate

Department: Dean’s Office

The Graduate Certificate in Digital & Transdisciplinary Literacies focuses on transdisciplinary, research-based approaches to STEM-focused and digital literacies that address intersectional issues of equity and justice in partnership with K-12 schools, in educator training, and alongside community organizations.
Many of today’s global problems, such as flooding and sea level rise, are too complex to be solved by one specialized discipline. Complex problems require transdisciplinary solutions that integrate pro-humanity approaches while transcending disciplinary boundaries across the natural, social, and health sciences. Transdisciplinary solutions also require the acquisition of academic vocabulary, facility with discipline-specific genres, expertise with digital tools, and the development of academic reading strategies that span K-12 contexts to build the STEM pipeline.
