LGBT Certificate Advising Coordinator
Frederick C. Corey, Ph.D.
Vice Provost, Undergraduate Education
The undergraduate certificate and the Interdisciplinary Studies concentration in Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies is offered by the Committee on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies, administered through the College of Public Service and Community Solutions.
Students interested in admission to the certificate program should meet with an LGBT Certificate academic advisor in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts as soon as possible in order to complete a certificate declaration form, and to select courses that most appropriately meet students’ individual needs.
All ASU undergraduate students in good academic standing are qualified for admission. All courses taken in the certificate or BIS concentration must be completed with a grade of “C” (2.0) or better.
Twelve credit hours in the certificate must be completed at Arizona State University. Students with transfer credits that may be eligible for inclusion in the certificate should meet with an advisor in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts.
Overrides, prerequisites, co-requisites, and other restrictions for individual courses are determined by the academic school, department, program, or unit offering the course. Please contact the department or instructor offering the course for authorization procedures.
15 Credit Hours for Certificate (minimum 12 upper division credit hours)
18 Credit Hours for Interdisciplinary Studies concentration area (minimum 12 upper division credit hours)

2. Capstone Experience. All students will complete a 3-credit capstone experience after completing a minimum of 9 credit hours in the certificate program. The capstone experience will be supervised by any member of the faculty approved by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies Committee. The capstone experience should be an internship, community service project, or research apprenticeship that integrates curricular activities with each student’s unique interests. The capstone experience should be based in principles of use-inspired, transformative research or creative activity that bridges the student’s curriculum with lived experiences of LGBT communities. Ideally, the capstone experience integrates theory with experience, scholarship with change, and/or research with outcomes. All capstone proposals must be submitted and approved prior to the first day of classes for semester the capstone course will be completed.
