The Certificate in Language Studies program is intended for those students who want to explore another part of the world as part of their overall education but who do not have the time to complete a traditional minor. In addition to the required language credits, MLL-rubric classes conducted in English offer the possibility of investigating the target cultures in some detail without waiting to attain advanced language competency. The certificate cannot be combined with an MLL major or minor. Students desiring to complete an MLLI certificate in language studies must have a designated advisor and select courses with the approval of that advisor.
Students must complete all of the following in the same language/culture area with a grade of "B" or higher.
NOTE: At least three courses must be taken at UMBC in order to complete the certificate.
