International Studies Certificate

The International Programs Office, in cooperation with the language departments and the Faculty of Arts and Science, offers a study option leading to a Certificate in International Studies. This option is available to all Queen's University undergraduate students regardless of their degree concentration, and is intended for those who wish to enhance their undergraduate degree with a formal international program of study. The International Studies Certificate combines language acquisition with cultural and interdisciplinary learning, and includes a study abroad component.

The Certificate was one of the first certificate programs at Queen's to be formally approved by Senate. First awarded in June 2001, the Certificate is becoming increasingly well - recognized as more Queen's students graduate with it. The Certificate is comprised of 15.0 units. Up to 6.0 units may be double-counted with a student's undergraduate degree requirements. The remaining 9.0 units for the Certificate are courses taken outside of degree requirements.
