24 credit hours
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.
