Certificate
24 hours

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

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

A certificate in international 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. If the international language certificate will combine more than one language, the student must submit a one-page proposal to the department chair providing a rationale for the language selection and a detailed list of courses the student plans to take in order to fulfill the 24-credit requirement.

Special Requirements

Courses used to fulfill a language major may not also be used to fulfill a requirement for a language certificate. No fewer than four 16-week courses or five 8-week courses in one language are required.

Transfer credits do not apply to the certificate. Only two courses may have been earned with a grade of "P," and the grades for the courses must be a "C" or above. Six hours of recognition credit hours can count toward a certificate. One 3-credit course taught in English (e.g. ILC 2150) with a topic related to the target languages may be counted towards the certificate.
