What is a certificate?

A certificate is basically an interdisciplinary minor. This means that a student takes courses within different departments to complete the certificate emphasis. For example, to earn a certificate in Peace Studies, students must choose from courses in several different departments including Sociology, Political Science, Philosophy and others. A certificate requires approximately the same number of credits as a minor.
