  • Interdisciplinary Certificates

  • Graduate Certificates provide substantial education in an academic discipline, represent the achievement of competence in a well-defined area of study, and they are embedded within degree programs. Certificates appear on transcripts associated with an awarded degree as "Certificates of Specialization."


    Interdisciplinary Certificates allow students to gain competence in relevant issue areas by taking approved coursework in another academic unit, as well as course at JKSIS. While these certificates are open to matriculated students pursuing a graduate degree at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies and are offered jointly, they are administratively based in other units.


    Eligible candidates must apply for the desired program no later than the end of their second quarter or by the stated application deadline, whichever comes first.


    As of AY 2019-2020, JKSIS currently participates in three Interdisciplinary Certificate Programs (see right).

    Certificates are awarded at graduation, along with the student’s relevant degree, pending successful completion of all requirements in adherence with DU policy.  Students are required to submit a separate graduation application for certificate programs and must work with the administering unit to ensure that all requirements have been satisfied as required. JKSIS does NOT oversee the graduation check or certification process for any of the aforementioned joint certificate programs.
