Penn State Berks
The undergraduate CI ED Certificate is designed to enhance the degree completion requirements through international field experiences and provide opportunities to investigate multiple education theories, policies and practices. The balance of course and fieldwork is intended to increase students’ inquiry, awareness and understanding of the dynamics of working with multi-cultural and diverse students through in-class and field opportunities. The program will facilitate and guide the candidate’s inquiry into understanding diverse education systems and encourage sensitivity toward multicultural students to address the increasingly diverse U.S. classroom population.
