The International Studies Certificate (ISC) program is an introduction for freshman and sophomore college students to global studies with an emphasis on 20th and 21st centuries. With a diverse set of courses with a world view, students will broaden their perspectives and gain an appreciation and awareness of the global community. Students may use this program to give cohesion to their electives within the Associate of Arts & Science degree, or they may find that this base in international studies will lead to a specialization or support a major in the international field.
The certificate requires 15 college credits, including at least one foreign language course (taught in the language). A grade of C or better is required for all of the credit courses. Up to three credits from another institution can be transferred to UW Colleges for inclusion in the Certificate.
At least one course is required from each of these 3 categories:
History and Culture
- ANT 100, 104, 204, 250
- GEO 101, 110
- HIS 106, 120, 127, 162, 213
- SOC 270
- WOM 250
Politics and Economics

Art, Literature, Music and Philosophy

Ask your academic advisor about a capstone interdisciplinary (IS) course, which helps students integrate their various courses while analyzing contemporary world problems.
Students participating in the International Studies Certificate program are encouraged to attend and participate in campus activities such as international films, music, theater, and guest speakers that enhance the international perspectives learned in the classroom.
Students working toward the International Studies Certificate are encouraged to include a study abroad experience in their academic careers. The UW Colleges offers a Study Abroad Program and those courses are included in the above categories so that they count toward the 15 credit requirements.
