Notes regarding the timing of the certificate:

  • GCOLL 511 is only offered in spring semesters, so it is important to take it in the first year when you are enrolled in the certificate.
  • Teaching as part of GCOLL 512 and 513 is most easily done in the fall semester after you take GCOLL 511; however, it is also possible to do your teaching in the summer after GCOLL 511 or the following spring semester.
  • Teaching as part of GCOLL 514 must happen in the fall semester following GCOLL 511.
  • GCOLL 516 can be taken prior to GCOLL 511, at the same time as GCOLL 511, and after GCOLL 511; it can also be taken in parallel with GCOLL 514.  GCOLL 516 needs to be taken twice for the pedagogy track.  
  • GCOLL 517 should be taken after all other certificate requirements are completed.
