Autism Studies Post-baccalaureate Certificate

Why Earn a Certificate in Autism Studies?

The interdisciplinary post-baccalaureate certificate Program in Autism Studies is designed to enhance the knowledge and subsequent practice of professionals working with individuals on the autism spectrum and their families, across the life span. It is grounded in the belief that people on the autism spectrum are integral members of their families and communities, and have the right to fully participate in the educational, social, cultural, political, and economic life of society.

As part of its interdisciplinary focus, emphasis is placed on the ability to work collaboratively with individuals on the autism spectrum, their families, other professionals, and community members in multiple environments to advocate for and provide needed resources. The program requires completion of 16 units of coursework and is designed to accommodate students with at least a baccalaureate degree, who are interested in or already working in the field of autism.
