                                                                            in Area Studies
                                             East Asia • Latin America • Middle East • Slavic and Eastern Europe • Western Europe

     A Certificate of Study indicates that a student not majoring in International Studies has
    nonetheless a substantial area studies component to her/his degree. The Undergraduate Area
    Studies Certificates are awarded by International Studies, and are available in the following areas:
    East Asian Studies, Latin American Studies, Middle East Studies, Slavic and East European
    Studies, and West European Studies. Certificates are designed to offer undergraduate and post-
    baccalaureate students an opportunity to study major regions of the world from a multi-
    disciplinary perspective. International Studies certificates are ideal for students who want more
    than just a minor, but who do not have the time to complete a second degree or double major. It
    is also an attractive option for post-baccalaureate students who want to enhance their job
    credentials or prepare for further professional training or graduate study without having to
    complete additional general education requirements.
         Undergraduate students receive their Certificate of Study along with their degree. Post-
    baccalaureate students enroll in the program though the Office of Continuing Education, and the
    certificate will appear on their transcript upon completion of coursework. All certificates are
    awarded by the Colleges of the Arts and Sciences.

    All certificates require 50 credit hours including 20 credit hours in a foreign language appropriate
    to the chosen area (example: Spanish 101-104). These courses may also be used for General
    Education Curriculum (GEC) requirements. Students choose an additional 30 credit hours of
    area-specific courses in consultation with an International Studies advisor. Of the 30 hours, 5
    credits may overlap with GEC requirements, and 5 hours may overlap with the student’s
    major. The interdisciplinary coursework in related studies must include courses from at least
    three different disciplines. At least 15 hours of this coursework must be at the 500 level or above.
    Examples of coursework packages associated with each certificate are given on the back of this
