Douglass College, in cooperation with the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, the Rutgers Business School-New Brunswick, the School of Communication, Information and Library Studies, and the Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy, offers a certificate program in international studies. The program, which is appropriate for students in all majors, includes three tracks: (1) international business and political economy; (2) women, world politics, and global leadership; and (3) transnational communication. A total of 21 credits, selected from a prescribed list of courses, is required for completion of the certificate. In addition, students must achieve an intermediate level of proficiency in the language of a target culture. Ordinarily, students in the certificate program are expected to spend one year as residents in one of the Douglass language or cultural houses. For more information, contact the program director.
