Certificates in Advanced Language Study

Students can earn Certificates in Advanced Language Study after the completion of  6 credits at the advanced, third-year college level (201 or higher) in Spanish or Italian.  Credit toward the certificates can be satisfied by coursework taken at Sacred Heart, study abroad credit, or transfer credit once the student has enrolled at our university.  Because the certificates carry only 6 credits, AP, IB, and CLEP credit are not accepted.  Students pursuing foreign language majors or minors would not earn certificates as they already would be formally minoring or majoring.
