UCIS Area Studies Certificates

The University’s Center for International Studies (UCIS) offers area studies certificate programs that combine foreign language training and multidisciplinary courses that are necessary for communicative and cultural competence. Pitt Law students can complete an area studies certificate concurrently with their J.D. program, adding no additional time to their studies.

Each area certificate program has unique application and credit requirements. Please visit UCIS’ site for each program to learn more:
