Beginning in fall 2020, there will be two living-learning community certificate programs: Global Scholarship and Scientific Communication. These programs are open to students in all majors, will span four semesters, and will give you a leg up on the competition
when you enter the workforce.
Truly live and learn in a tight-knit community. In your living-learning community, you’ll live near the same students you’ll take your certificate classes and labs with. Community is integral to getting a solid start at college. This built-in component
will make for an easier transition and connect you with students who share the same interests and goals.
Have a roommate who isn’t interested in the certificate program? No problem. You can still select a roommate outside the program.
You’ll take four classes and four co-curricular labs for a total of 14–15 credits. The cool part? The four classes you’ll take can apply to your degree, meaning this won’t set you back in pursuit of your degree. It will actually help you get the most
bang for your buck. Who doesn’t want that?
There’s even more in it for you than the certificate, the community, and the double-dip.
The Scientific Communication Certificate Program is specifically designed for Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) students that will enhance scientific communication skills employers demand. Students join a community of other STEM-focused peers
in the Northern Suites, right next to the buildings where all science classes take place.
The Global Scholarship Certificate Program is for any student who wishes to develop skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in our diverse, global society. Students join a community of peers who recognize the importance of global engagement and social
responsibility to become leaders in the 21st-century workforce.
To participate in one of the Living-Learning Community Certificate Programs, submit the Living-Learning Community Certificate Program form that can be found under the "Forms" tab when completing your housing application through your MyIUP.
