Academic Plan Code: 331013ACTS 

The Spanglish Decolonial Healing Advanced Certificate is offered to Spanish and/or Spanglish speaking students across any disciplines, heritage or geographical locations. The purpose of this online certificate is to engage students in decolonial explorations of healing projects, departing from their borderland raciolinguistics conditions. Students will advance healing or transformative projects in their own contexts that are delinked, parallel or within but counter to English, Western institutions, professions, knowledges and practices.


Applications are considered only once a year for admission the following fall. Prospective students must have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution in any discipline with a 2.85 grade point average in the last 60 units.

Candidates seeking admission to the certificate must demonstrate reading and oral proficiency both in English and Spanish or Spanglish by passing the certificate’s linguistic proficiency review.

Students with the required linguistic proficiency in Spanish and who are admitted or enrolled in any of the SDSU Master’s programs in the Counseling and School Psychology department will be admitted to the certificate.

Curricular Requirements
