The Russian Certificate 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. Students pursuing an MLL certificate select courses with the approval of their advisors.
Minimum 17 credits, including a minimum of 3 courses completed in residence at UMBC
