Multicultural Education is the study of the meaning of culture, and the relationship and influences between culture and education, with specific study of the teaching, administration, and effectiveness of schooling as they relate to multicultural student populations in Alaska.
Cross-Cultural Communications is an interdisciplinary examination of communication and language in a cross-cultural education situation, with specific study of the language, literacy, and interethnic communications of children and cultures of Alaska.
AS 14.20.020(h) requires all individuals certified as educators in Alaska to complete three semester hours of multicultural or cross-cultural coursework within two years of being issued their first Alaska certificate. Teachers, Administrators, and Special Service Providers must satisfy this requirement.
If you have not satisfied the multicultural education/cross-cultural communication requirement, you may be eligible for an initial teaching, a provisional administrative (Type-B), or a provisional special service provider (Type-C) certificate.
The multicultural education/cross-cultural communication courses listed below will satisfy the multi-cultural education/cross-cultural communication certification requirements. If a course offered by an Alaska college or university does not appear on this list, it is not approved to satisfy the certification requirements. Courses are subject to availability and may be offered at branch campuses or by distance delivery (correspondence). Please contact the institution directly with questions about availability, content, or enrollment.
Coursework taken to satisfy the multicultural/cross-cultural requirement can also be used to satisfy the recency credit requirement for certification
