Academic Opportunities—Certificate Programs
Some students combine their departmental majors with an interdisciplinary specialization by following one of the Certificate Programs—in actuarial studies, Asian studies, literary translation studies, mathematical modeling in political science and economics, and Polish and Central European studies—offered through the Multidisciplinary Studies Center. The Undergraduate Program in Physics and Astronomy offers a Certificate in Biological or Medical Physics. In addition, a Certificate in Biotechnology is offered through the Undergraduate Program in Biology and Medicine. The Department of English offers a certificate in Stage Management. These certificates, which give formal recognition to the specialized study, are awarded in addition to the bachelor’s degree. A Citation for Achievement in College Leadership is also available to students who have developed their leadership skills in the ways outlined by this program through the College Center for Academic Support.
