The East-Central European Studies certificate provides the opportunity to study the region of Central and Eastern Europe from an interdisciplinary perspective that incorporates both area and language studies.
By requiring one semester of language study (beyond the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ language proficiency requirement), the program gives students the opportunity to enhance their language skills beyond the introductory level. Furthermore, an area studies minor that includes less commonly taught languages (Czech, Hungarian, Polish, Turkish) as core requirements offers a special opportunity as there are no comparable programs in the state of Florida.
The certificate program is open to all undergraduates. To be eligible, students must have a minimum 2.5 overall GPA and a 3.0 GPA in their declared major. Completion of the certificate requires a combined 3.0 GPA for all certificate coursework.
At least nine credits of coursework must be unique to the East Central European Studies certificate out of all other certificates and minors.
