12 credits of interdisciplinary coursework (6 credits from within the major, 6 credits from outside the major). After students select one from five global concentrations, they choose from a comprehensive and dynamic list of courses ensuring an interdisciplinary perspective on their chosen global concentration.
Students may contextualize non-credit-bearing internships that are required in various graduate degree programs as credit-bearing experiences for UCIS certificate programs. Prior approval must be received from the academic advisor to pursue this option.
* Language courses may be used in the following circumstances:
Students may count language courses in the third year (i.e. grammar, conversation, courses taught in target language) that are above the intermediate level.
For students who are exempt from the language requirement due to previous coursework or as a heritage speaker, the introductory courses in a second language (either LCTLs, or a commonly taught language with a clear and stated relevance to their research or professional goals) will count.
