University of Maryland
Undergraduate Certificate Program


The Undergraduate Certificate in East Asian Studies is a 24-credit course of instruction designed to provide specialized knowledge of the cultures, histories, and contemporary concerns of the peoples of China, Japan, and Korea. It will complement and enrich a student's major. The curriculum focuses on language instruction, civilization courses, and electives in several departments and programs of the University. It is designed specifically for students who wish to expand their knowledge of East Asia and demonstrate to prospective employers, the public, and graduate and professional schools a special competence and set of skills in East Asian affairs.

Upon satisfactory completion of the courses, with a grade of C or better in each course, and recommendation by the Director of the Undergraduate Certificate Program in East Asian Studies, a Certificate will be awarded. A notation of the award of the Certificate will be included on the student's transcript. The student must have a baccalaureate degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, awarded previous to or simultaneously with an award of the Certificate.
