Language Study Interdisciplinary Certificate


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Undergraduate Degree Types Offered at UW-Stevens Point

This certificate is administered by the Department of English .

The Language Study Interdisciplinary Certificate allows you to learn about the human capability for language from a variety of perspectives. These include language as an integrated system of rules (linguistics) as the result of specific cognitive processes (psychology), as a communicative pathology to be remediated (Communication Sciences and Disorders), and as a practical key into another linguistic world (World Languages). This certificate provides a solid foundation for students wishing to pursue graduate study in language-related fields such as linguistics, rhetoric, psychology, sociology, philosophy, communication, and foreign languages.

The Language Study Interdisciplinary Certificate satisfies the Interdisciplinary Studies GEP requirement. For more information, see the GEP section of the catalog.
