A strong demand exists by employers for candidates to offer credentials to verify language proficiency in both oral and written communication. The undergraduate Certificate of Language Ability is designed for students to offer tangible proof of their language abilities and makes an ideal complement to other areas of study such as business, international relations, public health, criminal justice, hospitality, and more.
The certificate consists of 12 credit hours at 2000- and 3000-level (minimum of 6 must be at the 3000-level), with a B or higher in each course. Courses retaken using the university Repeat to Replace policy are not counted as first attempts.
