ETSU to offer new Appalachian Studies certificate

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (AP) -- East Tennessee State University is now offering a graduate certificate in Appalachian studies.

The new program was approved this month by the Tennessee Board of Regents and is a first for the state of Tennessee.

The program consists of an 18-hour curriculum designed to complement master's level studies. Course topics include Appalachian religion, art, literature, folklore and history.

The school hopes to attract graduate students who don't need a master's degree but for whom a formal program of study would improve their job qualifications.

Students may enroll in the certificate program beginning with the upcoming fall semester. Fall classes start Saturday.
