Dual Language Certification
The Dual Language Certification Program gives students already proficient in English and Spanish the opportunity to receive formal recognition of their dual language abilities. Certification can be completed at either the associate or baccalaureate level.
Program requirements: Students must take a minimum of 15 credit hours from the dual language courses in the general education core curriculum. These courses must include Spanish 2321 and 2322 (Hispanic Language and Culture I and II) or 6 hours of higher level Spanish courses; the remaining credit hours for certification must involve DL classes offered by departments other than Modern Languages. Students must achieve a minimum 2.8 GPA in their dual language courses. Successful completion of requirements will result in degree notation and a special seal on students’ diplomas.
