The International Programs Office, in cooperation with the language departments and the Faculty of Arts and Science, offers a study option leading to a Certificate in International Studies. This option is available to all Queen's University undergraduate students regardless of their degree concentration, and is intended for those who wish to enhance their undergraduate degree with a formal international program of study.
The International Studies program combines language acquisition with cultural and interdisciplinary learning, and includes a study abroad component.
Students intending to enhance their degree program with the Certificate in International Studies should first look at the certificate components. Those deciding to complete the Certificate requirements should register by completing the on-line student profile no later than the preregistration period for their third-year courses.
The Certificate in International Studies will be awarded upon successful completion of a degree program at Queen's University. Students must pass all 30.0 units (5.0 credits) relating to the Certificate with an overall average of at least 65 per cent or 2.0 grade point average (GPA).
In order to receive the Certificate upon graduation, students are required to complete an application form in the International Programs Office by May 1 for June Convocation, or by October 1 for November Convocation.
