Advanced Proficiency Certificates

The Certificate of Advanced Proficiency programs for French, German, and Spanish are jointly administered by the Language Center and the academic department. The Certificate of Advanced Proficiency for Chinese is administered by the Department of Asian & Middle Eastern Studies.

The Language Center administers the self-assessments, critical reflection essays, and proficiency assessments, which are required elements of the programs. The center is also the home of the TandemPlus program. Participation in TandemPlus is one way to fulfill the requirement of an intensive experience in the target language.  

Students who complete all of the certificate requirements will receive a Certificate of Advanced-Level Proficiency issued by the appropriate academic department.
