There is a minimum credit requirement for the Certificate of six credits at the 300-level or higher in the language for which the Certificate is being sought and a passing grade (of B- or higher) in a final comprehensive translation exam. This exam, based on a reading list, certifies competency in a language equivalent to at least four years of training at the college level and demonstrates familiarity with the major authors belonging to the Ancient Greek and Latin canon. Grades attained in coursework are included on a transcript, as are successful completion of the exam and acquisition of the Certificate.
