Language Certificate: Thai



The IPLL Language certificate consists of a minimum of 15 credits from 201 or above, of which 9 credits must be upper level (300-400 level). Intermediate- (200-) level language courses may count for both HSL and the Language Certificate when courses are taken for a letter grade.

Students must maintain a 3.0 GPA in all courses counting toward the Certificate. All courses must likewise be taken for a letter grade; CR/NC and Back Credits cannot count toward the Language Certificate.

Proficiency-level and nature of the coursework:

3rd-year-level language proficiency is the minimum standard for receiving the certificate. Thus, the certificate coursework must include a minimum of 3 credits of language study at the 300-level or above. However, substitution of subject-relevant non-language courses in the relevant subject area is allowed for students who already have advanced proficiency in the language (e.g. native/heritage speakers), subject to availability and advisor approval.
