This program is designed to: 1) provide students a wider and deeper range of international awareness and knowledge; 2) promote an interest in other cultures and places; 3) promote an interest in foreign languages; 4) lay the groundwork for future international learning options for you as a Delta graduate, and 5) enhance employment opportunities. The Certificate in International Studies is an "add-on" to the credential for your present program of studies. Courses/credits you already have may be applicable toward the certificate requirements.
