Certificates in Asian Studies

Both undergraduates and graduate students can earn a Certificate in Asian Studies through the Asian Studies Center, University Center for International Studies. A Certificate is another academic credential that attests to a student’s particular knowledge of one or more of the countries of Asia. An Asian Studies Certificate may be earned by students in any department or school of the University. It entails a combination of foreign language training and multidisciplinary area studies necessary for both communicative and cultural competence. When the academic degree and certificate requirements are completed, both are posted on the student’s official academic transcript.

Since most certificate students find they would have taken courses required for the Asian Studies certificate as part of their regular programs of study, enrolling in the certificate program allows them to earn another academic credential at no extra tuition cost andwithout additional investment of time or work.
