Language Proficiency

Equivalent of three years college level language skill in Spanish, Portuguese, Quechua, and Haitian Creole.

Content Courses

Total of six courses (18 credits). Three of these can overlap with their other credentials and three must be in at least two different departments/schools. At least 6 credits of the course work used to complete the requirements must be in addition to the credits used to complete the student’s major.

Students who are exempt from the language requirement because of previous coursework or heritage language skills may use language course credits towards the requirement for unique credits in addition to the degree program. 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 these options.

Research Paper

A final multidisciplinary research paper (10-15 pages in length, with 10+ references), a Master’s thesis, or a Doctoral Dissertation will fulfill the requirement for the research paper.

18 Credits
