Can I overlap courses between the Certificate and my major (like we can with double majors)?
No. There can be no overlap between courses used to complete your major and the certificate. If a course in the certificate must be counted in your major, we suggest that you take a different course in the certificate. Or, you could ask your DUS that you be allowed to complete a different course in your major. Similarly, we note that the term “prerequisite” is used by EP&E (for example – maybe others) to describe courses that count for the major but are “prerequisite” to applying to the major; an overlap here is similarly not permitted.
