This program offered by College of Arts & Sciences/International Languages and Cultures Department

International languages are an important part of the preparation that students receive as part of our mission to prepare all for global citizenship. We recognize students’ achievements in a language or more than one language with our certificate.

A certificate in languages requires a minimum of 24 credit hours of formal coursework in languages at Webster University.  A minimum of 12 credit hours must be in a single language.

For information on general requirements for the certificate, see Certificate Program Policies and Procedures.

Courses used to fulfill a major may not also be used to fulfill a requirement for a certificate. No more than 6 credit hours at the elementary level (1000-1990) may be counted toward the 24 credit hours needed for a certificate. No less than 4 16-week courses in one language are required, or 5 8-week courses.

Transfer credits do not apply to the certificate. Only one course may have been earned with a grade of "P," and the grades for the courses must be above a "C-". Recognition credit hours can count toward a certificate. Only one ILC 2150 course, with a topic related to the target language, can be counted towards the certificate.
